"These were really good. The only change I will make next time is to only use 2 tbsp of the horseradish sauce."

"I thought it was ok. Next time, less horseradish (or none), add 3xs more green onion, some parm and chedder cheese, and a dash of worchestershire sauce. My boyfriend didn't like it at all but he doesn't like "creamy" stuff"
