Thankyou for this one and for helping to lower my calories. DH loved it on Super Bowl Sunday. The Smart Balance was a really great idea. The only thing I changed was the seasoning. We are also our watching salt intake around here so for the spicing I used a home made Creole Seasoning Mix "Recipe #191938" which was good but I may fine tune a bit more for this recipe. I happened to have a batch already mixed so I used that. This recipe is such keeper it is going in my Zarr Stars Cook Book. Thank you!

This was really good--I couldn't tell the difference between this and the regular. I also took the idea and made rice crispie treats with the smart balance. Thanks!
