Wow these are soo good, lol. At first I thought, "hey I can go on the Internet and find an awesome recipe for these", but a lot of the recipes had buttermilk, or breadcrumbs. The catch? I did NOT have any of these things :( So I thought I might just wing it! And I am soooo glad I did, these are soo good and easy.
