Just another cheese ball - REC

We were served this at a friends and I loved it..Of course I was a little iffy about using dried beef.It kind of turned me off, but after tasting, well, I was hooked.

2-8oz. pks. cream cheese
4-green onions sliced, both green and white parts
1-tea. accent
dash worcestershire
6-slices Hormel dried beef, diced
1-sm. pack of sliced almonds or any chopped nut you prefer.I use the almonds

Mix all ingredients well. Roll into a ball and then roll in almonds and chill..This also looks nice just rolled in finely chopped parsley..Serve with your favorite cracker..my kids like wheat thins.

enjoy,
kadesma

I always thought that cream cheese and dried beef went well together. I make little apps out of just those two (remember to rinse the beef though).

Anyways, this is aptly called "Ginger's Cheeseball" for reasons I'm sure you can figure out.

1 lb. Velveeta, cubed or sliced
1 lb. Sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 lb. Cream cheese
1/4 lb. Bleu cheese
(make sure they are all softened)
2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 c. grated onion

Mix well, makes two large or four small cheeseballs. Roll in crushed pecans (or almonds or whatever nut of your choice) or parsley (always good for guests that don't like nuts).

kadesma, my family has made this recipe for years. It is one of our favorite appetizers. Our version is slightly different than yours. I agree it is great with wheat thins.

Cheese Ball

2 – 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened
1 jar dried beef
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
6 green onions
Walnuts, finely chopped


Mix all ingredients together except for nuts. Refrigerate mixture for two hours. Form into 2 balls. Roll in finely chopped nuts. Serve with crackers.

SC,
I think I like your version better than mine..While I like mine it seemed like it needed something to me..Now I know that a little mayo is what I need..Thanks SC, I'm going to try adding mayo and using some walnuts.. Oh yes, made your Antipasto Pizza, it was the best..Cade and Ethan both ate 3 squares each

What I like about this recipe is it's simplicity. Most of the ingredients I usually have on hand. It is a good recipe for that last minute appetizer.

PS, I am glad that your family like the pizza. It is definitely a keeper!!

I've been thinking about whipping up some cheese balls myself...my version goes something like this...and I never measure, just taste...

Cream cheese
Shredded cheddar
Worcestershire
Sherry
Chopped cashews
Onion powder
Garlic powder
A little milk
A little butter

Mix and cover and stick in the fridge!
