Not a dieter's dish, but definately a nice/easy appetizer for a small party. Serve with a little tomato sauce for dipping. Kids love these!!

  • 2 eggs

"DELICIOUS!" I made these tonight for a lil get-together, and I couldn't keep up! We didnt have the olive oil, so I used a reg. deep-fryer w/ veg. oil,and it worked great. I'd like to try the coating next time on fish! Thanks for a great recipe!
