Careful, these are addicting! They have a delicious, savory, eggy texture that makes you want to keep eating them. I'm not sensitive to gluten, but these sounded interesting and I had all the in...

We loved these!! Quick, easy and tasty! I used dried thyme as that’s what I had on hand....otherwise I followed the exact recipe

Need more cheese couldn’t taste it. But it did not have much of a taste.
