These were good but needed alittle more taste to them. I added bacon grease while frying them in my cast iron skillet and added more liquid to the soup. I used milk and water mixed, I also added salt and pepper and a tsp of minced garlic. I served them over creamed potatoes and had garlic bread. It served up nicely! Thanks for the recipe!
