    Yum!! Made these tonight and all the kids, hubby and grandma loved ‘em. Next go-round I might saute the onion/garlic if I have the time to mellow the flavor a little, but still. Yum.

    Hey, there! Anyone have trouble locating a diary-free parmesan?

      Hi Sharon,
      I’m sorry you are having trouble finding it! There are several brands available but they might not be in your area. If you want to add in a little more mozzarella instead that would be fine. It will change the flavor a bit but it would be a fine option.

    this looks great for my guy who is allergic to eggs, dairy, and wheat – what egg substitutes have you been able to use? Could I use ener-g egg replacer? is it just for binding?
