I found this recipe on They are much quicker to put together than others I have found here on Zaar. I was looking for a quick recipe and stumbled upon this one. I didn't have exactly the ingredients called for, so I'm looking forward to trying them as written next time. I also baked them with some Pam sprayed on them instead of frying. Placing here for safekeeping! :O)

These needed a whole lot more flavor, they were very dry also. I might take the basic recipe and do some altering. Maybe add some oil and Italian seasoning and much more garlic.
