These are very tasty little things. I followed Chef Kate's lead and baked them in the oven instead frying them. Great by themselves, but I added them to Crock Pot Ratatouille (recipe number 58047). Husband raved and raved.
Made these, following all the directions except the last--I baked them on a cookie sheet in a 385 degree oven, because I wanted to skip the extra fat. Raves all around! From the 91 year old fuss budget to the aging yuppie gourmets--all votes for five stars.
