But MANY of you love them...so here's a recipe for you!

I make these all the time, but didn't know I could freeze them! Thanks ;)

I am wondering how much this recipe makes? I do a monthly frozen meal exchange and am thinking of making this side to go with my entree. There are 6 families (but most have kids that do not eat these foods yet) so I'm not sure if I need to multiple all this by 6 or if this really makes more servings than one family would need.

Shannon - I would say a pund per family would be plenty. So this recipe would make 2 family sized servings.

Thanks - I just got your comment today (didn't get notified for some reason) and had to make it over the weekend but that's exactly what I decided too! By the way, I made your Savory Breakfast Muffins this weekend and they were fabulous. I hope it is okay that I wrote about it on my blog - I did link it to your recipe rather than type up your recipe so I hope that makes it ok as far as copyrighting and all that.
