I feel that I have to rate this recipe because one persons bad review has brough the rating down. This is a simple and delicious recipe. It is best if you use unflavoured breadcrumbs.
This was awful!! Made it for a party and I can't say anyone really enjoyed it. If it hadn't been for my husband's homemade spaghetti sauce we served with it, this would have been a huge flop!! Definitely will not make again.
Very good. I made these for a party and they were a big hit.
Very, very good. I didn't have any regular cornflakes, but I had honey-flavored ones. I mixed them with some Italian bread crumbs and had lemon chicken tortellini. Very unusual, and again, very good. I'll make this again.
I use ravioli too in a pinch, but these work better on a toothpick. These are always one of the first appetizers gone at my parties. I like to serve them with both spaghetti sauce and an alfredo sauce to dip them with. These are just like you would get in an Italian-American restaurant.
These were a huge hit at a recent party. Everyone loved them. I agree with the posters that said you need extra crumbs/eggs. I doubled (at least) the recipe for crumbs and egg dip. They are a bit of work, but WELL worth it. I used a spaghetti sauce, ranch dressing and hot sauce as dipping. Highly recommend the ranch....really good.
Great apps recipe. I used seasoned bread crumbs and added a little grated cheese and salt and pepper to it. Made a tomato sauce, alfredo sauce and a pesto to dip in.
This was great!I cooked it for a party I was going to and everyone told me how they loved it, if I were a teacher I would give it an A++! You rock Andrea!
