These appetizers are so good! The best part is you can make them ahead and freeze them and bake them frozen!

Mark, these are wonderful. I made them like your directions said. The Old English Cheese gives these appetizers a sharper, cheese flavor than using all Cheddar. They were spicy and full of flavor without being too hot. They were a big hit and voted a "must return" food. Family will get their wish since I froze a batch too. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.
