Reviews for Blue Cheese-Onion Steak Bites
"I made one night for my husband and since when ever i ask what he's in the mood for, for dinner....he always says this!!! So I'm off to the store to make again tonight."
"This was fabulous.... just fabulous. I honestly can't think of one thing I would change. I went a little heavy on the cheese spread, so when I do it again, I will abide by the 1 teaspoon suggestion, as the blue cheese can be potent if you use too much. You will not be disappointed by this recipe!!!!"
