THESE ARE AMAZING!!!!! I just wish someone else would make them!! :) :) My husband LOVES THEM!!!!! If they didn't take so much time to make he'd probably ask me to make them once a week! lol
These were very good and will make them again. I used chopped shrimp and half and half. Next time I'll cut back a little on the bacon in order 2 taste the shrimp more. Love this.
Very very yummy, even better as leftovers !!!
I forgot to mention that I made this without mushrooms and used Italian Blend Cheese instead of Asiago, Parmesan & Romano like another reviewer suggested. It did take some time to prepare but is well worth it!
