Very simple to follow and good results! I used 1/2 chopped fresh onion instead of the onion flakes. The hard part was waiting them to bake for the final hour!

These are sooo yummy. I made them for my daughter's birthday party back in November, and they were a bit hit. The sauce is yummy and a nice alternative to your chili sauce and jelly based sauc...

These are absolutely delicious as is. I made them for New Year's Eve. I just kept some toothpicks by the tray and let guests pop a couple whenever they wanted to. Excellent and easy dish!
