Homemade Cheese Ball Recipe: A great gift for the holidays! PocketChangeGourmet.com
Serves: 1 large Cheese Ball or 2 smaller
Ingredients
  • 2 packages (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese, softened
  • 2 packages of thinly sliced meat, pastrami or beef works best (I buy them at Aldi’s or Walmart, for less than .60 cents)
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Accent Salt (or regular salt) Accent has MSG in it, so if you don’t want to use that, regular salt is okay, but use a little less
  • 3-4 green onions, chopped finely
Instructions
  1. Place cream cheese in a large bowl and gently stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until slightly creamy
  2. Cut meat and green onion into small pieces
  3. Add to cream cheese
  4. Add salt and Worcestershire Sauce
  5. Mix well
  6. Place plastic wrap on counter
  7. Add cheese ball mixture and form one large ball or divide in half for two smaller cheese balls
  8. You can also roll in chopped nuts if you want
  9. Wrap tightly and either place in a resealable freezer bag, wrap in another piece of plastic wrap or seal with FoodSaver System
  10. To serve, remove from freezer the morning or the night before you want to serve, place in fridge
  11. To give as a gift, add crackers and a small knife to a basket or colander
  12. Serve with crackers of your choice
