MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 5, 2013

Little too much parsley. Used about half.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 7, 2012

I agree with the other reviews -- I did not use the microwave and it is way too much parsley! I added 4 oz. of cream cheese to help the filling stick together and I sprinkled the cheddar cheese on top. They got hot and bubbley under the broiler!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 30, 2012

Used a standard oven instead of a "Mc-nuclear". Also used chicken sausage instead of turkey. Was very good and will make again with a few twists of my own. Sliced Black olives, chopped mushrooms come to mind right away.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 3, 2012

It was really easy and good, but had way too much parsley for my taste. I cut the amount by half, and thought that was perfect.
