Aunt Christine’s Cheese Ball

posted in: cooking | 0

Yep, just checked the calendar and it is December 23.  How did that happen?  Are you ready?  Do you need a quick appetizer? You just might have all of the ingredients on hand for this one, and it is quick and easy!  If you have a food processor, it will be even quicker and easier!!  This cheese ball is always a crowd favorite — as in, they-practically-lick-the-plate-clean favorite!  We call it “Aunt Christine’s Cheese Ball” because I got the recipe from my sister about 20 years ago.

Ingredients:

1 – 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened

½ tsp. season salt

1 ½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce

3 green onions

1 package luncheon meat, thinly sliced (the cheap stuff!)

Directions:

Finely chop the green onions.  Chop the luncheon meat (I like to use Buddig beef), reserve half.  Combine the remaining beef, onions and all other ingredients.

Refrigerate for a while so that it isn’t “sticky”; form into a ball and roll the ball in the remaining chopped beef.  Serve with crackers.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a health, safe, and Happy New Year with friends and family.
