These are for sure one of my families FAVORITE Food Hero Recipes ever!!!  So amazinly yummy.  Of note we had extra batter/egg mixture so I also made some mushrooms - YUMM!  They did cook less than indicated in the recipe so be sure to watch them and if possible use the low setting on the broiler.  

So yummy! I am definitely going to keep making this recipe.
