Just ok. I thought my hubby and his friend would love it because it is very meaty, but there were leftovers... so I am not convinced. Also it is a bit awkward to eat, especially in Scandinavia where they eat pizza with a knife and fork!

My guests were impressed to be served something warm at a drinks party. This was very easy and makes a change from cheese and pineapple hedgehogs!
