This was an easy recipe. The cheese flavor is well defined. Green onions or a touch of dry mustard might be nice in this recipe too. On thing you may want to look at however, I was unclear as to how long this should be on the heat for is it for all steps 4,5,6 and 7? I was not sure. I took it off just before I added the the egg yolk. Also I Suggest that you add the cool time into the directions..I did not see the added note about prep time in your discription so I took the dish out of the frige and started to roll very soft balls.. then discovered the harder sides and decided that it needed to cool longer.
