Chef's Tips

Make the day before serving; place on baking sheet and store covered in refrigerator. Rewarm in preheated 350°F (180°C) oven for about 8 to 10 minutes or until heated through.

Children may especially like these as an accompaniment to chicken fingers or wings. For adults, they are a perfect vehicle for smoked salmon and sour cream, garnished with sprig of dill.
