Great dish, truly great flavor. I just absolutely love this recipe. I have made it about 4 or 5 times now (literally every week since I discovered the recipe) and they always seems to turn out great. They are like melt in your mouth good, I can't get enough of them. Fairly easy to throw together and very delicious. I like things that don't require a lot of ingredients or seasonings to be flavorful. This is one of those things. Also not too bad for those who are on a budget- like me.
