  1. I love that you posted these! I need to get some things made for my upcoming guests and these will fit right in!!!

  2. Do they take long to thaw or can you just throw them into the oven?

  3. You can just toss them in the oven frozen. (this is Tommmy's daughter, so I've seen it happen first hand!)

  4. Hi Tommy,
    I tried making them last year just from the comments you had made about them. Don't remember the cheese. Maybe that was the missing ingredient!lol. I didn't think they were very good and didn't look good. But now that there's a real recipe, I'm going to give them another shot as they are a perfect size for an appetizer. Are the cheese cube really small or does it melt into the hot meat? Thanks so much. Sherall


I'd love to hear if you made any of these recipes. And if you have specific requests or questions, please email me at
