This was an interesting idea. We loved the addition of pickle juice. However as described we found the recipe too salty. We added another brick of cream cheese and it was better. I think the Italian dressing mix was just too salty for us. Read More

I served this at my job's Thanksgiving dinner and everyone loved it! I've never seen a cheeseball disappear before - but this one did. Very easy to make and a scrumptious appetizer for any special occasion. Read More

Just like the description says...just a cheese ball. I like my cheese balls with a little more flavor. Recommend Cheddar and Bacon Log and Dried Beef Ball both on this site. Read More

This recipe is great!! I made it by the recipe the first time and everyone loved it however like I always do I tweaked it to my liking I used Zesty pickle juice instead and added that more zip. Thanks for the recipe...everytime I make it I have to give the recipe away. Read More
