I made this over the weekend for fathers' day dinner. It was a big hit. I added the juice of 1 lemon and added 1 tsp. of cayenne pepper instead of the hot pepper sauce. Everyone wanted the recipe!

This was undeniably the WORST dish I have ever made.I stuffed them in the mushrooms,what a waste! Bland!I even added the juice of a lemon for taste!

I found this recipes very easy and very tasty. My husband is allergic, so I substituted imitation crab. I served it when we had out of town company. Everyone enjoyed it.

This was very tasty with a bit of a kick and came together quickly. I added the juice of 1 lemon, about 8 oz. of sauteed mushrooms (just because I wanted to use them up before going bad)and substituted 1/2 tsp. cayenne for the hot pepper sauce. Also, I did not have a bell pepper so I used diced roasted red peppers in it's place. I will make this again. Thanks for the post.
