"This recipe was in the Mrs. Dash advertising supplement in the Dec/Jan 2015 issue of Simple & Delicious, and I have to say : DELICIOUS! I made it as an appetizer and they flew off the tray. As a field editor and one who hosts at least 10 parties every year, this will stay at the top of my list."

"Really good! I was surprised. I made this with ghoulash and it was great. I couldn't find smoked mozarella so I used smoked gouda. We will make this again!"

"Everybody raved about these. I changed it up a little. Could not locate smoked mozzarella at the store where I was shopping so being from Texas I got Pepper Jack. Gave it a wonderful kick. Even my picky grandson who doesn't eat onion's went back for what was left. Served it with a crockpot roast with carrots and potatoes. Next time I will try the smoked mozzarella. Nancy"
