    A little weird. I love parmesan cheese, so I thought i would love this, but they're like parmesan donut holes. A little too greasy and just weird. Sorry....  -  07 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Make sure you fold the cheese in. If you stir it in, it will be very dense.  -  25 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
