      Loved taste. Only gave 4 stars because the crust did not hold together well. Needed more butter. I used grated parmesan out of the can and would use fresh next time. I used double the country ham in smaller dice. For an appetizer I would reduce the amount of filling by half because it was too tall to make small slices. I could not imagine cutting this huge cheesecake into 12-15 servings and eating a whole piece at one setting. Very Rich. Everyone who ate it enjoyed the flavor.

      Wonderful. We made it for a family brunch and everyone loved it. I use Ritz crackers in place of oyster crackers.

      To anyone who reads this review... TRY THIS RECIPE, It's a WINNER!! I have made this recipe several times, I was actually just checking to see if it was already posted because I was going to post it myself. This is a staple of Chef Marcel Desaulniers on the menu at The Trellis in Williamsburg VA. This is really such a wonderfully flavorful first course, or you could serve it with a salad as a nice lunch dish. It has a creamy richness to it so if you're serving it as a first course, do put it over some dressed greens to balance and slice the pieces on the small side.
