Reviews for Cajun Canapes
"Filling was delicious, but there is far too much bread. I used only half of each biscuit, but the amount of bread is more than needed. Next time, I will probably cut the dough and reform each biscuit into four parts."
"This looks delicious but wouldn't it be easier to jut tear the biscuit in two and put into a muffin tin so its a little bowl?"
"I don't like gr. pepper so I left it off. We eat a lot of venison so I made it with the homemade venison sausage. Scrumptious! And easy."
