"The kids liked it but I did not. Not at all. Not sure what it is missing but I am not a very good cook so can't come up with a solution... Thank you though"

"Turned out too greasy for my liking. Recipe has potential though. I think with a little modification this could be good. Perhaps less mayonnaise and add more sour cream or some shredded mozzarella cheese instead."
