Made these for my book group ladies. They were delicious. Very easy to prepare just wish I'd grilled them earlier & then perhaps kept them warm

Very easy, delicious, disappeared rapidly. did add a few chilli flakes to mince, otherwise made to recipe. I used cocktail sticks as skewers. Will be making again.

These were really easy to make and delicious! I made them for a starter for friends and they are great with the dip. My young kids love them too with tomato ketchup! Definately worth making.

Made these years ago when they were in the magazine.... they are wonderful! If you're having a little soiree with friends over, they are just marvellous. Very easy and very moreish. Really pleased they're now on the website!
