"Everyone in my family loves this recipe! Tastes just like I've had in restaurants! I actually cut back on the heavy cream by half and used a half cup milk. It was perfect!"

"I made this tonight. My husband likes things a little spicy so I added garlic salt, creole seasoning and salt. The.n sprinkled with Parmesan cheese in the bowl ( my husband added some hot sauce to his too) yummy on a cold night!"
