This recipe is SOOO good. My husband nearly devoured the whole batch. The secret is to add a generous pinch of salt to the batter before frying. Seriously, try this recipe; it's the best!

I made these for my husband and I and will not be making them again. They have a good texture and brown nicely when cooking but lack taste. I thought them to be very blan.

These are so easy and quick. They are also fairly flexible. I only had one egg the second time I made these, and they came out just fine. I have also used both plain flour and baking mix and it ...

Very goo and so easy. I did add about 1 cup finely grated cheddar cheese. This is a keeper!
