10 STARS!!!! Excellent cheese ball! I just mixed it up and tried it...it hasn't even sat yet and it is the best cheese ball I have ever tasted! I will be making this one over and over! Your sister's recipe is a winner for sure! Thanks for sharing!!! :)
Loved it! Can see making this for many a gathering, including this weekend!
Excellent. When making it I discovered that my husband had not bought cayenne pepper as requested. So I used a little Cajun seasoning and red pepper flakes to make up for it. I also doubled the hot sauce. I took it to work for snack day and it was gone before lunch!
