This is adapted from an old TOH Quick Cooking recipe that has saved my tail many times. I keep them on hand in the freezer for those crazy busy times when I don't have time to cook.

Forgot to rate these when I made them. These are Great! I just love having them in the freezer to pull out. Had lots of snow lately & I didn't have to worry about what to fix.
