This is not for every kid, but most adults. You can add more or less cayenne pepper as to your taste.

These are very good, and I like that they are baked and not fried. The seasoning is tasty. I like the cheese in the coating. I would probably not make the sauce again, though. Not a big horseradish fan. I was worried that the baking time might be too short, but they turned out cooked just right, and still juicy. Made for Fall 2009 My 3 Chefs game.
