    I left out the head cheese and just used Blue Cheese - excellent! restaurant quality!  -  22 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used Havarti cubes and mild cheddar and this was really quite good. I tossed a pasta salad in it. Decided not to go with the head cheese, "ick" factor..  -  05 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
