I was given this recipe before Christmas ,by my brother's girl friend.She got it off another site ,but could not remember the site.I made these at New Years..They are wonderful.I put them together , the day before ,and chilled them.I covered them with plastic wrap.Then I rolled them in the flour and egg wash ,and bread crumbs, and fried them,it cut down on my work time.I will make them again for Super Bowl....
