Cheese Ball

Hello blast from the 50s past!

Holidays are great for indulging and this is something I only make for get-togethers. It transports well and is easy to make just let s refrigerate for at least and hour, the longer the better. Recipe makes one large cheese ball.  If you want to double it I would suggest doubling everything but the cheddar cheese.

Cheese Ball

  • 1 pkg of cream cheese
  • 1 pkg of rennet/lipase-free cheddar cheese spread (you can find them in the deli isle sometimes they have seasoning already, otherwise check where the specialty cheeses are)
  • 1 clove of garlic grated
  • 1/2-1  small jalapeno minced
  • 2 tbs of  minced onion
  • 1 tsp of sesame oil
  • 2 tsp of horseradish dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup of sliced almonds, chopped nuts or chopped parsley for outside


Bring the cheeses to room temperature in a medium sized bowl. Prepare the rest of the ingredients and add to bowl. Using an electric mixer cream together ingredients, adding salt and pepper if needed.

Put bowl back in the fridge for atleast 30 minutes. Form cheese ball with hands  and roll into nuts or parsley, wrap in plastic wrap if you are going to travel with it and let rest in the fridge for atleast 1 hour before serving.
