I have tried it today and it was delicious. I only added red bell pepper and parsley very finely chopped. Also, I did not have bread crumbs but I used whole wheat crackers. Thanks a lot for the recipe.

This is a very easy and delicious recipe. I prepared it around Thanksgiving, and even had a request for the recipe!

I tried this recipe right after Thanksgiving, and it was delicious! My friend asked me for the recipe, and she has made it quite a few times. It's very easy to prepare!!

I made these for a football party and got RAVES. On some of them I topped with a very thin slice of onion and a dab of dill pickle relish, and these got just as high marks as the avocado and tomato.
