This was a hit at my July 4th BBQ, everyone loved them! They took a little long to stuff, but I made them first thing in the morning, refrigerated them and then grilled around 4pm and it worked out great. I grilled them for 8 minutes just as recipe states and I didn't add olives because I hate olives, but that was the only thing I changed. Definitely worth the effort!!!
