“From Caribbean choice, these little gems are so easy to make & the taste is not too overpowering so it's a great recipe for kids too, my toddler gobbled these up! I found when I made them that the flour made it hard for the cheese to stick so I did half with flour & the rest without. I baked these in the oven to cut down on fat and I think if baking then the flour step is not needed”
