"Chutney is so delicious. I love this cheeseball. I discovered the glories of cheese and chutney one day when I had unexpected guests, and not much food in the house. I had cream cheese and a jar of chutney, poured the chutney over it and we finished it off in minutes! But adding bacon, cheddar and green onions? It's over the top! I'm so glad I found this recipe! :)"

"Took it to a party last night. There was lots of food and dips to choose from...people ate more than half if this sizable cheese ball. I put the chutney in a ring around the bottom so people had the choice to take it or not. Also, any type of pepper jam would work, I think.

Badkitty - It's ridiculous for you to give a 1-star rating when you have not even tried the recipe. Why don't you post some recipes rather than rate the photos?"
