"Worked well and the kids loved it. Started out with less Mayo, salt and pepper, and kept adding till I got the right taste. So easy , thanks."
"I love mayo, it makes most recipes amazing..... but these were horrible. Nobody liked them and I had to throw away almost the whole dish---such a waste. The mayo is very obvious in the flavor--def not a secret ingredient."
