    This recipe is the bomb.   It is true to taste just as served at Black Angus.  I had my doubts but was absolutely delighted with the results.  I cut the recipe in half using only 3 eggs in the batter with superior results.  If you enjoy these tasty appetizers (I can't imagine who doesn't) you will be pleasantly surprised with this recipe.  My cucumber sauce was not as creamy, (had tiny lumps, may have needed longer mixing I didn't mix 10 min as suggested) but the taste was still there.  Also I wanted to make sure the cucumber taste was prominent so I  used more than just half called for when I divided the recipe in half.  You can decide for your own taste preference.  I will use this recipe over and over again without reservations.  "A MUST TRY FOR SURE IF YOU ENJOYED THESE APPETIZERS BEFORE WHEN DINING  AT BLACK ANGUS"
