Totally Yummy Cheese Ball

Hi! We wanted to share this Totally Yummy Cheese Ball recipe with you. It's sooooo good! And the red and green colors in the pimentos and parsley make it perfect for Christmastime gatherings. This recipe makes a good-sized cheese ball, but if you're feeding a large crowd, it's easy to double the recipe for more.

4 tbs. margarine or butter
2 small packages cream cheese
2 cups finely shredded cheddar cheese
2 tbs. milk or dry white wine
2 tbs. finely chopped green onions
2 tbs. diced/chopped pimento
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 dash hot pepper (we use Tobasco)
2/3 to 1 cup snipped parsley or finely chopped walnuts, pecans, or sliced almonds (we add some parsley to the mix and then use pecans on the outside of the ball)

Bring butter and cream cheese to room temperature, mix well; to that add the shredded cheese, milk (or wine), green onions, pimento, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce.

Beat until well combined (a hand-mixer works well). Cover and chill 4 to 24 hours. Shape into a ball and roll onto parsley or nuts. Serve with favorite crackers (we use Ritz or Triscuit crackers).

Bon appetit!
