    This was easy and delicious. My only suggestion is that since it is very fattening that you cut back on the amount of butter, oil, and half and half that the recipe calls for. I will definately fix this again.  -  13 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is SO good! I did make some substitutions. I used Old Bay seasoning, as others had suggested and I sauteed the garlic and mushrooms in coconut oil instead of butter and olive oil. I also used cream cheese instead of half and half. Awesome. Thanks!  -  26 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this for the second time tonight & I just want more people to know about it. It is wonderful! My kids are picky & they love it! It's like something you'd get in a fancy restaurant. This time, I did cut the butter & oil by half. It was just as yummy!  -  04 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
