The flavor was very good, as you can expect from any recipe that uses cream cheese, mayo AND parmesan. The crushed red pepper gave just a tiny hint of a spicy aftertaste, but definitely still mild enough for kids. Will make again!

WAY too much effort & a very bland massive amount of food (that may be dumped unless someone is starving)! A waste of time, ingredients & trust.
