Cheese Ball


This is also good when made with Swiss cheese. I saw someone on TV add chopped bacon to the cheese mixture. I’ve never done this. (I have two vegetarian sisters.) But it sounds good to me. This recipe comes from the Pillsbury cookbook my mom received for a wedding present.


2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

3-oz cream cheese

3 T Mayo

½ tsp Worcestershire

1 tsp white wine

dash each of

onion salt

garlic salt

celery salt

Sliced or chopped olives, OR chopped nuts OR chopped fresh parsley, OR dried beef to roll in. (OR a combination that makes sense)

Combine ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Blenders will work in a pinch, but they will make you swear. Cover and chill until firm. Shape mixture into a ball and roll in nuts or whichever covering you’re using. . Wrap in plastic wrap and chill until serving.

You may want to have double the ingredients on hand just in case you "accidentally" eat the first cheeseball before your holiday dinner rolls around. I have some sisters who can attest to this from personal experience. :)

I love this cheeseball; we make it at our house too, but we add pimientos on the inside to make it purtier.
