I made this last night and I did use some Old Bay seasoning (1/2 1tbls) and my DH and friends enjoyed them! I did leave them in the fridge for about an hour. I didn't see the cilantro listed in the ingredients but in the instructions you have it listed to add to the mixture. Since I didn't have any I left it out. Made for Fall PAC2009.
