Recipe Comments & Reviews

I didn't like it AT ALL-I'm not a fan of bitter cheeses. I doubled the recipe to make a large tree shape: not much of it got eaten- partially because I made it look like a Christmas topiary, but, also because others don't like the blue cheese/feta, cheeses' bitter tastes. However, some loved it.
best cheese ball i ever had...great with crackers
