“Rollie (one of the little Filipino boys I worked with) used to bring these to our pot lucks. I always think of him when I make them. This is a great potluck item--great for super bowl or good for making and freezing for a quick snack to pop in microwave and go. Takes a while to make,but worth the effort.”
