MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 11, 2014

"Very good! Hard to flip so they cheese stays inside. I would try ham or chicken or roast beef another time or even bacon."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 27, 2012

"Very tasty. I think next time, like the others I will add some chicken and even some bacon. The cream cheese was a great additions. Butter the outsides seem complicated to me though so I too will go with Pam."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 28, 2012

"Found them a bit bland, although much better with salsa. Next time I will definitely not butter them but spray the pan with butter-flavoured Pam. Has potential."
