    Hi Barb, these are finger-lickin good!! Is the way I can best describe them. We made them just the way you posted but we did add some crispy bacon to the batter. These were so good and such a great way to serve it to our resident's!! :) They were a great hit and they are now a staple of the menu at our "Cafe Ponce!" Thanks for posting a great and simple recipe. Diane :)
