"My mother used to do this 40 yrs ago. Was just looking for it to recall whether it was 2-1 mayo or sour cream. It's quick, easy and yummy. Use shrimp as a change. Also, I use the broiler to crisp the top for the last few minutes and keep the bun from going too hard. The old recipe we had called for longer in the oven; 20 - 25 min sounds way better. Good party app .. will do it tonight"
