CHEESE CHEESE CHEESE Ball!
The fact that I am from Europe and that I am a girl, means I have a predisposition to absolutely adore all things cheese. This cheese ball is flavorful, different, and incorporates any cheeses you have in your fridge. Unfortunately, I do not have a picture of this because it was DEVOURED on my birthday before I could even take a snap shot. However, it is the easiest and BIGGEST party pleaser I’ve made for a gathering so far. Here’s what you’ll need:
8 oz. package of room temperature fat free cream cheese (or any kind you’d prefer)
1 cup of any shredded cheese you may have, I used a combination of parmesan and cheddar
1/2 tablespoon of onion powder
1.5 tablespoons of salsa (any kind you like, I like Pace Medium)
Splash of salt
Splash of pepper
In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients. Once everything is mixed together nicely, take a generous piece of clingwrap and put it to the side. Make the mixture into a ball shape and place on the clingwrap. Use the clingwrap to really make the mixture into a ball shape. Place in the fridge overnight or for a couple hours. Take out the fridge 30 minutes prior to serving so it is easier to dive into. Serve with your favorite crackers. You may need a butter knife if the crackers you’re serving the cheese ball with break.
If you are serving a large number of people, just double the recipe to make a larger cheese ball.
This is a guaranteed crowd please, trust me when I say- if you’re trying to impress…bring the cheese to the people.
