This is an amazing new flavor. Plan this to be among other dishes at a party a bit strong for eating more than a few bites. Idea for easier prep: Spread cream cheese and garlic mixture on a plate and once the "sauce" has thickened spread over cream cheese. If you choose to do this think about using a dish with a rim so it can be covered with plastic wrap (otherwise as I learned the wrap stuck to the topping)
This was a very good cheeseball but I used 2 blocks of cream cheese because the amount of garlic that the recipe calls for is just too much. Also this cheeseball was much better served at room temperature instead of right out of the fridge.
Based on previous reviews I used fresh minced garlic and only used one small clove. I also used only 1/2 tsp. worcestershire in the topping. I served this in mini parmesan cups as a base for an appetizer with shredded roasted pork. Layered the cream cheese mixture pork topping. It was really good but be sure to reduce the amount of garlic if you make this!
A hit for sure! I first encountered this cheeseball at a good friends family gathering...they call it "the bomb". Good with or without pecan. A easy recipe to play around with ingredient wise. Can even add abit of heat(spice) to the cheese mixture. Fresh garlic and a bit of salt in the cheese is good too. All in all it is very good just made the way described in this recipe and yes everyone(except those who hate garlic) will love it!
This is a great cheese ball! I was a little worried when I read the ingredients but I believe anything made with brown sugar can't be too bad so I took a chance. I took the advice of some of the other reviewers and put less garlic powder in and it came out fabulous. Great recipe!
I generally love savory/sweet flavors together but this didn't turn out so great. It sounded like it would work well together but the garlic was waaayyy too strong - and I'm a garlic lover. And the worcestershire in the sugar/butter/nut mixture threw the whole thing off in my opinion. I'm keeping this cheese ball though as I think I can use it to make a sort of sauce for chicken or pork...can't see wasting it. I may try making it again - but reduce the amount of garlic powder drastically and omit the worcestershire all together.
