How Do You Store Leftovers?
Honestly, these little bites are best if consumed within the same day, however, you can always store them in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Simply reheat in the oven once ready to serve for best results.
How Do You Get Them to Be So Crispy?
OK, so this is often the #1 question that I get asked. My bites are crispy because of the flour batter that they are dipped in first followed by the breadcrumbs. Be sure to always shake off excess batter and use parchment paper on your baking sheet. Once they are gently placed on your baking sheet, spray them lightly with oil spray before placing them in the oven and let them golden. They’ll crisp up very nicely! For EXTRA crispness, add ground corn flakes to breadcrumbs.
