Top Review by Mimi Bobeck

I found this recipe to be very good - for Adults. Children's tastes aren't refined enough to appreciate this recipe. True, it doesn't taste like the original (which is always everyone's first complaint about everything from tofu hotdogs, to reduced fat/sodium/sugar) But people with dietary needs shouldn't have to miss out either! I happen to like the health benefits of soy, so I don't mind making recipes with soy.
