    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
