    Really want to make these. However, I rarely buy Kefir. What should I look for in choosing kefir. Any favorite brand? Thanks!

    The recipie looks great, but I am highly allergic to milk, I even react to lactose-free milk. Any alternatives? I am also allergic to eggs, which I would just leave out in this recipie.

    someone said they were allergic to eggs. Can’t you substitute chia seeds and water? I think its 1 tsp chia seeds to 3 tsp water, not sure.

    Do you think it would be ok with ground chicken? Would everything else remain the same if I used chicken? Cooking time too? Thank you for all you great recipes and information, I find it very useful.

    This looks amazing and thank you!!! If I used all lamb or subbed ground beef or turkey or pork, would that work or not be as good? Thank you!!

    What is the story on the comments about kefir? Kefir is not listed in the ingredients or the directions. I would prefer to use some other flour besides cassava because this is the first recipe that has it and I don’t want to buy a whole bag of flour and only use a small amount. Can you suggest an alternative flour?
