    This is a great recipe. However, I did substitute Kraft shredded white cheddar cheese instead of the processed cheese. It worked out well. Also, after baking, I broiled for a minute or two for extra crispness. Everyone loves this recipe!  -  04 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was heavenly! I went to a party a few weeks ago, and the hostess told me she had gotten the recipe from Allrecipes. So I found it here and made it myself. My husband and mother-in-law couldn't get enough! She copied the recipe from me. It is truly a great appetizer - thank you for posting it!  -  09 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I found these good but just a little too salty on my first batch; the next time I substituted garlic powder for the garlic salt and they were just right! Really easy and convenient to freeze ahead for parties, too. Everyone who has tried them loves them.  -  04 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
