      These were soooo good, and so easy to put together! I thought these would burn, but they didn't. For the herbs I used parsley and dill, and they were such a nice combination with the feta cheese. I will be enjoying these again in the future.

      *Made for Australia/NZ Swap #82" Used parsley and dill -- dried, not fresh -- we were having a mini-blizzard ! May well have made a difference, but made the balls larger, and baked 5 minutes longer. Flavor was really good, but consistency a tad mushy. Very tasty with crackers -- and will do again according to recipe !! Thanks for posting, awalde.

      Wow, these were terrific little jewels of flavor. I loved them, the texture and the flavor were perfect, I was sorry that I only made half the batch. For the herb mixture I used mint and oregano and I did use a little white wine. Thank you for sharing this recipe Awalde, I will definitely be making these again. I know my son is going to love them also.
