"Super easy, but not super flavorful. Definitely did not turn out like the picture. I used turkey bacon and onion powder."

"These had a really good flavor and everyone who tried them liked them, but I couldn't cut them into circles. Even with a serrated knife, they came out like little blobs and kind of sealed themselves shut. Not sure if I rolled them too small, or maybe I need to chill them first next time."

"So good and SO easy to make. I roasted a turkey on Superbowl weekend and had these for an appetizer. The kitchen was so crowded but I still made them!"

"Delicious! Instead of the regular cream cheese, milk and chopped onion - I bought a tub of onion and chive flavor soft cream cheese. It spread on easily and was delicious with the bacon. As mentioned in TOH magazine, I dipped each one in shredded Parmesan cheese before baking. I will definitely make these again."

"So easy, so good, and so versatile. I played around with the ingredients, as did some other reviewers, and I lightly brushed the tops with olive oil, then sprinkled with Parm and garlic salt before baking. That was a real winner."
