Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"Very good," raves Susan May. "I subbed pickles for the green onion and used Dijon mustard. I liked the addition of paprika. Served it on a bun with lettuce, tomato, and a few more pickle planks."

"Great recipe," according to NADIGIRL. "Didn't have green onions so used shallots. Came out great! Will make it again."

"Superb," says Teri Peters Sheldon. "Since the best place to start improvising is with something that's perfect, I used this as a base recipe, and added my own little touches. I substituted chives for the green onion, simply because I have an abundance of it in my garden."
