I made this for my family Christmas gathering. Even though I accidentally used 8 ounces of Feta cheese in the recipe it came out great. Everyone loved it. Read More

I think I added too much of something maybe it was onions and one of the herbs. It came out awful for me! I have to throw away what I made and don't think I'm willing to try it again.... Read More

I used double the amount of feta cheese and half the amount of dill and oregano and it was very good. Next time I will reduce the amount of green onion as it was a little overpowering. Read More

I just loved this recipe and it was so easy. I added chopped walnuts to the outside creating a sturdier and more visably pleasing look. Read More

This is a great cheese ball! I really thought it would be too wet when I was mixing it but it hardened up fine. I just put the mixture in a couple layers of saran wrap and shaped it that way. I only put in 3 T of oil and you could probably do with 1 or 2 - not sure it made much difference. I also only put in half the spice amounts and it was heavily spiced (and I like a LOT of herbs and spices)! It looked like it would be completely overwhelming with the whole amount. Also I totally forgot the garlic - no biggie. Double the feta would have made it even better. Also I made it a brick shape instead of a ball. After it hardened overnight I rolled it in black sesame seeds and served it with the Townhouse Flipsides Pretzel Crackers (the best cracker discovery ever!). YUM! Read More
