These are great because they all protein to keep you fuller longer; great for making it through a morning at church or to prepare your child for a morning of academics or a keep anyone full and energized before the big game. You can also use them as a simple appetizer.

    These sound pretty darn good- hubby would like them with sausage, myself, I might substitute hamburger. Either would be good for ‘football food’ on a toothpick. We do SuperBowl some years and I think I will add this one to the spread- thanks for posting it!
