Homemade Cheese Ball

Cheese ball

A great starter to serve before a holiday gathering. You won’t believe how simple it is to make and the best part is you know what’s in it.  I like to serve it with organic crackers. Be sure to offer gluten free crackers too.


1 package of cream cheese, softened

1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese ( I like Tillamook )

4-5 green onions, chopped

1 teaspoon garlic salt

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 cup chopped pecans

Place the cream cheese in a medium size bowl and blend with a hand held mixer. Add the cheddar, green onions, garlic salt and Worcestershire sauce, mix until incorporated. Roll into a ball and then roll it through the pecans covering it. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in a container for up to a week in the fridge.
