  1. These are delicious! I followed the recipe exactly. I used large curd cottage cheese but next time might go with the small, but it wasn’t really an issue. For those that are using a temperature controlled griddle, I found 375 to be perfect.

  2. Do these freeze well? I’m looking for meal prep options and would love to make a big batch of these and just throw them in the toaster when I want them!
