  • Prep Ahead of Time – Once they have cooled you can keep them in an airtight container for about 2 days at room temperature and up to a week in the fridge.
  • Freezer – After they have cooled completely you can wrap each one in plastic wrap and place them in a freezer bags, press out as much air as you can, and you can keep them in the freezer for 2-3 months. Option to make a double batch – enjoy some now and some later!
  • Serving suggestion – These go great with grilled ribs, chili or they also make the perfect Thanksgiving side dish! 
  • Toppings – they are so yummy that you could eat them by themselves but if you want to bring them to the next level – cut them in half and add a little honey, ghee, or butter on top!!
