    Thank you for the recipe. They were so yummy… Instead of frying I tried baking them on a parchment paper, on 400 F for about 10 minutes each side, or until they get the nice golden brown color. Had them with feta cheese and sour cream. Leftovers used the next day for lunch as a sandwich with mustard. 🙂
    I will definitely try more of Miski Organics recipes.
