    I made this for our Christmas party and it was a big hit. I made it into a log instead of round and just rolled it in extra dried beef. I think I added more than 3 tbsps. of horseradish just because I love it. Thanks for posting!

    this was incredibly wonderful.this is the second time i made this recipe. this time, i used a 2.2 ounce jar of dried beef and 8 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese, skipped the walnuts and made it for a New Year's day party, great hit. The first time I made it, I did use the 4 ounces of dried beef and it was way too salty. it would have been a 1 star review, so I waited a made it a second time with modifications. Everyone at the party was glad I did.

    I made this the night before our Christmas dinner and it was very good, the 2nd day it was too salty, should have done like another reviewer and rinsed off the beef. I will make it again, rinse the beef and add some green onion tops for color... I like the blended flavors very much...Thanks for a keeper...!

Welcome! I joined this website in 2001, as a new wife and Mom of a 1 y/o and I was 28 yrs old and did not know about cooking. I found this website cause I searched the web and wanted to find a good recipe for carrots! I found that recipe and so much more here over the years. I learned so much from this website and opened up my eyes to other recipes. I now am 46 y/o. I am now divorced and my then 1 y/o son is now a Marine. I have a wonderful man in my life that loves and appreciates my cooking and I thank this site for all of its help. I still come here for recipes. I hope you like my recipes and your family enjoys them also....there is many here and I love to pass them on.
