      Rave reviews from family & friends. I find it makes way more than 8-10 servings. Maybe 16-20+. You can cut way back on the fat using 1/3 less fat cream cheese, or 8oz 1/3 less fat + 8 oz fat free cream cheese. That plus low fat cream cheese still tastes awesome! I get requests for it all the time.

      This is outstanding. I made this appetizer for a progressive dinner type thing and everyone raved about it! I think the heat needs to be increased to 350 when you bake the cheese cake mixture. I am a cheese cake Connoisseur and felt it was not quite set.

      This is a great appetizer. It can be made ahead of time and it feeds a lot of people. I have used it several times for dinner parties and for pot-luck events and it is always a hit.
      For those that want a spicier product, add several drops of hot sauce to the cream cheese mix before baking.
