Made these up for a small group I had over, & they were a hit! Made half of them with turkey bacon & the other half with the regular kind, & there didn't seem to be much difference in who liked what! I also put out a container of maple syrup & another of honey, & most of my guests seemd to prefer the honey! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
