Oh my! This is soo good! I followed recipe pretty close, used green onion finely chopped, garlic powder with just a pinch of salt, & I had some dutch smoked cheese I used a long with the sharp chs. Also, I prefer toasted almonds, so i used those. I love the spiciness! I think it's perfect! However, for those that dont like spicy I'd just 1/2 the cayanne. Thanks so much for a great recipe! I have a feeling my family will be asking me to bring this to ALL the future gatherings.

Excellent cheese ball! I do not care for raw onions but they were perfect in this recipe. I cut the cayenne pepper to 1/4 tsp. because I was afraid 1/2 tsp. would make it too spicy. I should have left it alone though. You could hardly notice any zip at all so I'm sure the full amount would have been fine. This make a very large cheese ball. That comes in handy for a large gathering, but if you are making it for a small party, you might want to half the recipe or make two balls and save the second one. Thanks for posting!

This was really good and so easy to make. I did cut the cayenne back to 1/4 teaspoon and the garlic salt back to 1 1/2 teaspoons. I will definately make this one again.

Delicious. Made this for a party. Everyone loved it. Makes a very large ball. I will probably cut in half the next time.

This was a very good, simple cheese ball. We made it exactly as the recipe says, however, we did feel that it was a little too salty. I'm going to use regular garlic powder instead of the garlic salt next time. Other than that, it was fabulous, a new favorite.

This was really good. I liked the spiciness of it, and the onion flavor was great. I did use 2 garlic cloves instead of garlic salt. Will definately try again. Thanks!

Retro, delicious, and easy to make. I cut the portions in half for a smaller ball. We loved the zippiness from the seasoning.

A bit too salty for my taste. Brought it to a party with all girls, and it hardly got touched. Brought it home to a houseful of guys and it got devoured.
