Top Review by Sydney Mike

I know I changed things a bit, but I needed to cut back on the amount of seasoning, so used just 1/2 teaspoon of the cajun seasoning, & half the amount of cayenne pepper, too! Still had some wonderfully flavorful cheese tasties, & will be making them again in another couple of weeks! Thanks for posting this great recipe!
