  • This was very good-- although they fell apart a bit during the last part of cooking. I served them with salsa. The whole family liked them-- I'll make them again and hopefully have better chance of keeping them together in the pan! Definitely worth a try. - 3/19/08

    I have that happen too, maybe an egg would help?
