WOW!!! You can't go wrong with this one. I cooked the bacon and used Major Grey's Mango Chutney which I found in the ketchup/mustard aisle of my grocery store. I noticed that you can also purchase Major Grey's online but I have seen it at several grocery stores. I fed 15 people and had 10 requests for the recipe. That's a hit!! Read More

I followed the recipe exactly but like others have said the brand of mango chutney you use could make a big difference. Mine was very chunky and too sweet. I think my idea of a "bunch" of green onions was too much. Next time I would use less onions and I would cook the bacon until it was crunchy. I had used pre-cooked bacon and it just didn't give the ball enough flavor. I felt this needed something a bit tangier so maybe craisins instead of raisins or lime juice mixed with the chutney? I'm just not sure. Read More

I was looking for a recipe with Indian flavor and this fit the bill nicely. I cooked my bacon myself but otherwise made it as written using the "hot" variety of mango chutney. The chutney was in my local grocery store with the condiments near the cocktail sauce. The flavor of this recipe is so good. Everyone commented on it and several asked for a copy. Will definitely make again. Read More

I couldn't find mango chutney at the store so I made my own. Mango jam white vinegar raisins onion garlic spices - turned out great. The cheese ball was a hit. Men at our party were all over the dish.:) Read More

AWESOME! The flavors work SOOO well together. Couldn't find Mango Chutney so I used Smuckers Mango Jam. Didn't have plastic wrap so I lined a small round bowl with a plastic storage bag and pressed it into shape. I made the bottom flat so that it would sit nicely on a plate. The cheese gets pretty firm once refrigerated so I recommend putting a spreading knife out with the dip and crackers to make it easier on your guests otherwise you will end up with a cheeseball full of broken cracker parts. YUMMY! Read More

I live in a small town and couldn't find mango chutney. So I subsituted mango salsa (strained) mixed with apple jelly. It was FABULOUS! I also didn't add the golden raisins personal taste. It has already been requested for Christmas Day;-) Read More

I used the spicy chutney and mixed it right in the cream cheese to make more of a spread. People absolutely raved over this. I sprinkled toasted almonds over the top. Read More
