"We’re a family that loves snacks," explains Judy Armstrong of Prairieville, Louisiana, "and I combined some of our favorite ingredients in this fast, easy and delicious recipe. Great for entertaining, it can be prepared ahead of time and browned just before guests arrive. It’s quickly doubled for a crowd and extra special with marinara sauce."

"I actually didn't flatten the balls, just rolled them in the bread crumbs and browned them. I served them with toothpicks as an appetizer with marinara sauce for dipping. Yummy!"

"These were pretty good. I cut the recipe in half and used up some small amounts of asiago and romano with the parm. They didn't seem very sturdy since a couple broke while flipping but maybe it just needed a bit more crumbs to stiffen it up more. Will definitly make again. Thanks"
