I love the recipe I made it for my family and they love it

I made these for a party and everyone loved them...easy to make too!

I made this for a work pot-luck and everyone wanted the recipe. I will definately make it again and again.

Very yummy. Used olive oil instead of butter and toasted both sides first.
