Recipe Nut, these were so wonderful. The seasoning was perfect. Thyme and oregano are my favs. I grilled these in a grill basket because I was afraid they might fall apart directly on the grill. The wood chips really added a nice smokiness to the flavor. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.

These were great! I didn't have any wood chips but I think I will try them next time. I put them in an aluminum pie plate to bake in oven and then used this same plate to cook them on grill as I was afraid they might fall through the grill. I served them with grilled chicken and it made a great combination. Many thanks.
