I love cheese ball. It is a strong weakness of mine. Cheese ball is very popular in this area and shows up often at get togethers of all sorts. It’s especially likely to be seen during the holidays. This particular recipe is one that my sister-in-law (known as Aunt T to my son) makes each year for our Christmas Eve festivities. It’s vegetarian which makes it a good office option. You can roll it in nuts or extra cheese, or you could divide in half and roll one ball in each for some variety. Either way, get the ball rolling and make one for your holiday get together!
2 8 0z packages of cream cheese, softened
1 cup of shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup of shredded American cheese (Velveeta shreds)
1 tablespoon of Worstershire sauce
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
Nuts or extra cheese for rolling
Combine all ingredients (you’ll have to use your hands and it will get messy) and form into a ball. Roll in either nuts or extra cheese. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Serve with choice of crackers. I like Ritz or Socialables (my mother in law’s pick).
