      Made this for a neighborhood potluck several days ago, & although I admit to not even tasting it, I must admit that it got many, many raves, based mostly on the combo of cheeses, I'm told! I'm not big on either blue or smoked cheese, but that's just me, & almost everyone else totally loved these! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      Other than omitting the hot sauce, made as written, great late night snack, after dinner, made mine a little bigger, and ended up with 20. GREAT APPETIZER. Made for your win in FootballPool..

      These looked and tasted sensational - and disappeared super-fast at the pre-Christmas party I took them to. I reduced the amount of hot sauce and worcestershire sauce - so that I could at least sample some: zero tolerance of anything hot - and I increased the garlic to three cloves (minced) and added some of my favourite herbs, namely a rosemary and sage blend I've been using in a lot of recipes and thyme. Thanks for sharing this recipe, loof. Made for PRMR.
