These were recently tested in the Dershem kitchen – eaten and enjoyed by one and all. In fact, when I was making them, 2 out of 3 kids commented on how good they smelled and how excited they were to try them. Believe me – that is not a frequent occurrance! You can serve these straight up (they taste great with “veganaise”) or on a bun.
