    I made it pretty much according to recipe, turned out great!!??  -  12 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I doubled the spices and added a Tbsp. of soy sauce and a few drops of hot sauce in place of the cayenne. Just before I took it out of the oven, I added a tomato cut into wedges. Very good.  -  29 Jan 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
