"THIS SOUNDS YUMMY. I have not tried this recipe yet; however, I have made a similar appetizer by filling the "pea boats" with seafood salad. They are delish."

"What a neat idea. I made this exactly as is and it was great. It also did what all good recipes should do and gave me other ideas! I did the same thing with pimento cheese and peanut butter. Even mixed up whipped cream cheese and added drained crushed pineapple to it."
