    I've just eaten two warm out of the oven and they're really yummy! Neither one of us likes garlic and my picky husband doesn't fancy cold onion (he'll be taking them for his lunch), so I've had to leave out those two ingredients. I added a half teaspoon of dry mustard and next time will chop some chives into the dry mix. These are lovely and moist and flavourful - Thanks for sharing nina007!  -  20 Feb 2013


    Left out the bacon because we didn't have any and the garlic because dad doesn't like it. Also added mixed herbs which made them gorgeous, amazing recipe thank you!  -  01 Aug 2014
