As a young girl, I made these for my dad, who was always talking about how my grandma made them so well. Little did I know you were supposed to bake them in sauce (to cook the rice), and I served them after frying them. Needless to say, they were not a hit!! LOL!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe, I just may make these for my kiddos soon and share this story with them! ;o)
