"I only had green olives and they worked fine. I also added a little Franks Hot Sauce to the cheese."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 8, 2013

"everyone enjoyed this. I'd never stuffed anything before but this was easy. We used regular cream cheese instead of fat free since it was the carbs we didn't want. We used Panko instead of breadcrumbs just cause - well it tastes better!"
