    PROS: easy, ingredients you probably have, easy to modify spices for different taste (eg:curry/chilli/cumin/etc?)
    CONS: quite dry - need sauce/gravy, no cook time is specified!!
    RECOMMEND: cook for 12 mins at 350, then FLIP THEM and cook for another 8-10 mins. Will make them again, just modified.

    This recipe was good, but it needed a little something - a sauce or maybe a bit more salt. I cooked for 10 mins, flipped for another 10, then 2 minutes under the broiler to try to crisp them up, as they were still quite soft inside. - 11/14/16
