Pretty good recipe. I had to add much more Worchestershire and hot sauce than the recipe specifies. Otherwise, good and easy to make.

While preparing for this recipe, I realized (to my dismay) that I had bought low-fat cream cheese AND I was out of mayo. However, I continued this recipe despite my little "roadblocks." To my surprise, this still turned out excellent! The low-fat version did not compromise the taste, no one noticed the lack of 3 TBLS of mayo and it held together fine. It also tasted excellent when served over crackers. I will be making this again...I'll try it with the mayo to see if there is additional improvement but we all thought it was great the first time around!

Wonderful, it was the light of the party, will make again, very soon. I too added twice the hot sauce and W sauce and it two extra green onions. It was perfect!

This is the best cheese ball I have ever had. I made it for my bunco group and they just loved it. There was so much that I made two balls and brought the second to work the next day. It was a hit twice

Did not like this recipe at all when first made, even though ingredients looked great. Thought it a failure even with the addition of extra hot sauce and Worcestershire as recommended. Fortunately though I had made this a couple of days ahead and by the time I served it, it got rave reviews. Guess it's like leftovers, they often improve with time.

It was ok. Rather bland - needed additional spices. I will try this again, making several additions.

The best Cheese log I've ever had. I served it as a appetizer before Christmas dinner and everyone RAVED!! about it. I gave the recipe to just about everyone in attendance. Thank you :o)

This was delicious! I added more bacon and more green onions. It was a real hit at our Thanksgiving dinner where I am usually in charge of appetizers.
