"This recipe is our family's holiday favorite. Grandma usually doubles the recipe, otherwise it won't last long! It can be rolled in ground nuts, bacon bits, or left plain."

I only gave this 4 stars because if I wouldn't have read the reviews of other similar recipes before hand I would have also added the onion salt and it would have been too salty. I also omitted ...

This family must have been denied salt as children. Every ingredient has salt. You have to drink a lot of liquor not to notice this baby's real taste. Yuck!

I've used a similar recipe for years. I use 2 pkg. cream cheese to dried beef, green onion to taste and worchestershire sauce. NO salt or MSG is needed.

This has become a holiday tradition for us! My husband loves this cheese ball and drools over the idea of having it at Christmas. :) I don't use the MSG. I do shape it into a ball and roll in...

This (minus the MSG) was a hit at my Grandmother's surprise 65th birthday party. I thought it was ok...but everyone else seemed to enjoy it! There were not any leftovers!

WAS NOT THAT VERY GOOD LESS ONION AND MSG AND IT WOULD BE FINE

I looked this recipe up because I had lost my original recipe. I'm using this on Christmas Eve - minus the MSG. After reading the reviews, I wanted to state that I am not a salt lover. I will no...

I'd give it a 0 if I could. Who makes anything for a family dinner with MSG anymore? This cheese ball gave my brother a serious migraine.

The other ladies are right - don't add the onion salt or MSG. Make it the night before and your favors will have time to meld. I like to roll in parmesan cheese.
