"Well Crap!" I thought to myself.
So I decided to make my own and freeze 'em up for the same uses; One of them being popping them in a 350º oven for 30 minutes and packing them in my daughter's lunch.
Since then I've made a couple of batches with success, but this is the first time I remembered to take pictures (duh. Not like I'm doing a food blog or anything.)
Anyhoo, here you go.
The (working) Recipe.
