I was looking for a savory cheesecake to make for a party appetizer. I came across this one on a food blog called Tablespoon. It looked interesting, so I decided to try it. We liked it. My husband likes the savory cheesecakes better than the sweet ones. I am a sucker for sweet, but this was pretty good served with crackers. Everyone liked it and it went fast. I did change the crust to one of crackers, rather than pastry, so this one posted has that change from the blog recipe.
