I was a little skeptical about this cheeseball. But, much to my suprise, it turned out. Not to mention, it was the first thing to go at my party! I appreciate this recipe, and actually I have part of it ready to go again, just need to add the crumbs. I didnt use the walnuts, because I am allergic, but believe me, they werent missed! Thanks!
