Author Notes: When I was catering, we kept these little beauties in the freezer ALL the time for "emergencies." I still try to never be without a bag or two of them around. They are a tasty addition to a cocktail party, and great to pull out for last-minute company. The Mustard Sauce is also very versatile. These are really good at room temperature, and make great "road food." - ChefJune
