I LOVE these! Knowing that they are somewhat healthy also helps.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 2, 2011

I give it a fair star rating because the Italian dressing kind of ruined the taste. It was sour tasting. The next time I will fry them in olive oil and butter.

These are quick and easy to make. I have prepared them twice and everyone loves them!
