How to Make a Cheese Ball
My mom makes this and gives it in her Christmas box of tasty treats she makes for friends. Some of her friends eat the entire ball themselves, no sharing!
I will admit it, I like it too. It’s one of my favorite. It is great for the holidays, and anytime you entertain friends and family. Have a party? This is a great recipe to make for a party.
Who will you make this delicious recipe for? Will you use it to entertain or as gifts?
This makes enough for 2 good size balls. So once your guests eat the first one, you can bring out the second. Or keep it for yourself!
2 – 8oz packages of cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles, room temperature
1 jar old English cheese (located near process cheese isle)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup finely chopped onions (or 1 tablespoon dried onions)
1 cup walnuts
Mix everything but the walnuts well and let chill for 3-4 hours or overnight uncovered.
Chop the walnuts until size of pebbles or just buy chopped nuts!
Take about a 4 cup bowl and put a generous portion of nuts on the bottom.
Put 1/2 of the cheese ball mix into the bowl and turn the ball, so that it is coated with nuts on the top side.
Repeat this with another bowl and the nuts.
Any additional nuts left can be sprinkled onto the top of the ball.
Alternative: Use plastic wrap to form ball and get the nuts on.
Place the ball in the fridge to firm up.
Serve with your favorite crackers.
