in the UK, i haven't stumbled on any savoury cheesecake dish, both in cookbooks AND in restaurants. in fact, i only heard of savoury cheesecakes in a fiction book i once read, and i really wanted to find out some recipes...THANKS FOR ALL THESE!!! i don't know why this is...maybe it's because there are so many quiche varieties around, they save the cheesecakes for sweets.

Here are a couple more:

Savory Chili Ranch Cheesecake

Ingredients:
1-1/2 cups crushed cereal
1 (1-ounce) package ranch-style salad dressing mix
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
19 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 large eggs
2-1/2 cups (10 ounces) shredded monterey jack cheese with peppers
1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chilies
1 (8-ounce) carton sour cream

Preparation:
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Combine the cereal, 2 teaspoons of the salad dressing mix, and the butter in a large bowl; press into the bottom of a lightly greased 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool. Reduce the oven temperature to 325F.
Beat the cream cheese and the remaining salad dressing mix until fluffy with an electric mixer at medium speed; add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in the Monterey Jack cheese and chilies.
Pour onto the crust; bake for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven; gently spread the sour cream on top. Let cool completely; cover and refrigerate overnight. Arrange the desired toppings over the cheesecake before serving.

Makes one 9-inch cheesecake or 24 appetizer servings
*******************

I think I got this one from someone here, not sure:

Appetizer Cheesecake

1 6-ounce box cheese crackers, finely chopped
1 8-ounce package cream cheese (I use neftachel), at room temperature
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup minced stuffed green olives
1/2 cup diced celery
1/4 cup diced bell pepper (I used orange or yellow for color)
1/4 cup minced onion
2 Tbs lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
few drops of red hot sauce, to taste
Stuffed olives for garnish

Oil a 7 or 9 inch springform pan. Cover bottom with half of the crushed cheese crackers. Beat cheese until smooth and creamy. Blend in sour cream, olives, celery, diced bell pepper, onion, lemon juice and salt, Worcestershire and hot sauce. Mix well and pour over cracker base. Smooth and sprinkle remaining cheese cracker crumbs over top. Cover and refrigerate over night. Garnish with stuffed green olives. To serve, remove from spring pan and place on plate, cut into wedges. I prefer the miniature ones as they are easier to serve. The recipe (from an old, brown and weathered newspaper ad, says to serve with pear wedges, which I have not tried, usually crunchy bread or crackers. Makes 16-20 appetizer servings.

I'm just worried because that's the reason springform pans are usually used, and its a crumbly crust.
good point, marmar. An easy out would be to use muffin liners.

Thank you for mentioning that. It never occured to me. It would be a dollar well spent then.
If only I could find the foil ones still, because they'd probably release better once you wanted them to than the paper ones would.

I need to bring an appy to work on Tuesday. Is the Bacon Onion Cheesecake "spreadable", like I could serve it with crackers? I agree, it looks yum yum yummy! Along with all the other recipes! I might have to make more than one! Constance's Chili Ranch is looking tasty too!

I have a delicious recipe for smoked salmon cheesecake if anyone wants it. That I should add, is different from the one posted.

I would say not too spreadable, Shannon. If that's what you want, you could experiment with just baking the filling on its own - maybe adding a little more liquid to increase "schmearability."
