I have made these both baked and fried. I won't lie, they are much better fried. However, in the interest of health I typically will bake them. They still come out crispy, although drier than frying. I have used other recipes, but the nice thing about this recipe is how easy it is to make. There isn't really any measuring and they are difficult to screw up. I highly recommend adding the beans.
We really enjoyed this. I chose the oven method, even though frying them sounded much better. They weren't crispy, but they still tasted great. I made 10 of them thinking I made too much for my husband, my 2.5 year old, and me, but we ate every last one of them. Thanks!
