These are good, you can always add garlic, or rosemary, or oregano to these. I'm writing the generic form <LOL> as this is the way my kids like them.

Oh God are these ever good! I have been wanting to make these for a while and I finally did today! I got 27 balls, I think I might have rolled them a bit too large! next time I will be sure to make more. I added in some Parmesan cheese and finely chopped green onions. These are so delicious, they'll be gone in a flash! Karen thank you so very much for a great recipe!...Kitten:)
