Absolutely delicious! I served these with my prime rib dinner on Christmas and will be putting them on my menu next year. I substituted onion powder for the green onion, and have to say they were even better reheated the next day!
These were great - really really cheesy. I used the bagged shredded cheese that was a mix of cheddar and monterey jack and it worked nicely. I really liked how soft they stayed. Will be making these again - thanks!!
