    This recipe was adapted by a lady named Tieghan I changed the seasoning in her dipping sauce a bit and followed the rest of her recipe . They were very good and the next time I make them instead of frying them in olive oil I am going to try and bake them and see if there is a difference or not besides being healthier. I will keep you posted.
