    GREAT DISH! I made this recipe many times. One year I couldn't make them fast enough before one batch was gone.

    Made this for a party this weekend... overheard someone saying "get some of these, they are delicious!". These didn't last 5 minutes - first empty plate on the table! I'll definitely be making these again. My son says they are AMAZING!
