How to Serve: Serve warm with your favorite sides and enjoy! If you're planning to bring these as an appetizer, or have a larger crowd, double the recipe to make enough for everyone!
Storage: These are a bit tricky to store because half of the ingredients are cold and half is hot. If you do want to save them, I recommend storing them in an airtight container in the refrigerator and eating the leftovers cold.
Sides: The options are endless! Some of my favorite sides: No Egg Potato Salad, Crispy Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries, or your favorite bag of potato chips! You really can't go wrong.
