Cheeseball Recipe for a Party!
Are you looking for easy appetizer recipes for a party? I have the perfect one for you! I haven’t made a Cheeseball in YEARS. I found my moms old recipe since my husband loves snacking on cheese and crackers and spreads. We decided for New Years Eve we would do a bunch of finger foods and cold appetizers instead of a dinner. You will love how easy this cheeseball recipe is!
The recipe makes 2 cheese balls. I made the recipe, scooped out half and made the first cheese ball, then added a few ingredients to what was left and now you have two different ones and its SO simple.
8 oz cream cheese softened
8 oz sharp cheese grated
8 oz mild chedder grated
1/2 cup of mayo or miracle whip
Chopped pecans for garnish
Optional: Green Onion and 2 ounces fresh or 1/2 can of tiny shrimp or crab
Mix the first 4 ingredients in a mixer until completely blended. I added 1/2 a Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce and some garlic salt at this point until it tastes the way you like it. Scoop out half and form a ball (I use wax paper and plot it in the middle to form my ball as I hate getting my hands goopy.) You can put in the fridge to firm up if its too soft and then it will mold easier. Roll in nuts.
The second half I add 2 ounces fresh or 1/2 can of tiny shrimp or crab and a thinly sliced green onion. Form into a ball and roll in nuts. You’re done! Easy right?
This recipe is great to make ahead so you can get ready for the party!
