Blue Cheese Balls - Juustotahna

Vicki Butts (lazyme)


These intensely flavored cheese balls are delicious spread on Finn Crisp crackers or thinly sliced rye bread. They make a good appetizer, smorgasbord item, or an addition to a Finnish salad plate.

1/4 tsp

2Add the butter, Tabasco, and onion. Blend well.
3Form into walnut-sized balls.
