MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 15, 2012

I've made these twice this past week. They are easy to make. Second time I left out the chives and bleu cheese since I only had freeze-dried chives and my hubby doesn't like bleu cheese, and substituted fresh onion and a bit of dill. I liked those as well. I suspect you can't go wrong if you have nice roast beef! Oh, it only took me about 3/4 of a pound of roast beef to make them..

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 5, 2012

Made these for a group of all ages and all enjoyed. For those who didn't like the blue cheese or horseradish, I simply left theirs plain and they still complimented the recipe! I recommend purchasing a high end roast beef. Next time I will increase the horseradish by 1/2 T.
