We like to make these every New Year's Eve. Adapted from a recipe that once aired on a holiday special on Food Network, but truly altered to our tastes. I found that it isn't necessary to use vats of oil for these. We started serving these with sour cream and salmon after eating them this way in restuarants in Germany. Cook time is approximate per panful. Serving amount is also a guess - I have never counted how many this makes. Usually, they are gobbled up as fast as I can get them onto the platter.
