This recipe was pretty neat. It's definitely different from anything I've ever made before. Unfortunately, I didn't have any cheese. That was probably why it came out a little blah. With the cheese, it'd probably be 4 stars instead of 5. Thanks :) Edit - The more I ate, the better it tasted! I had to give it an extra star!Reply
