With Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years heading our way soon. It is time to make some cheese balls :)
The Best Cheese Ball Recipe
From the kitchen of Audrey Howe
Handed down from my mother
My recipe is just from memory - from watching and helping my mother make this for every holiday. There are no exact proportions.
Use about 1 pound of cheddar cheese. (If I have leftover cheeses of different varieties - I mix them.) One package room temperature cream cheese. Begin by grating the cheese. Mix the cheese and cream cheese in a food processor, or with a mixer, or by hand. It needs to be blended well. (I usually blend it, then let it sit for a while, and blend it again; repeating this
several times.) Add a liquid (7-up, Sprite, wine, etc.) to moisten. Sprinkle with garlic powder to taste. Roll into a ball. Roll the ball in chopped walnuts. (Any kind of nut would work). Wrap with waxed paper or plastic wrap. Refrigerate. I usually make it a day or two in advance, so the flavors blend together. Serve with crackers.
Also, don't use garlic salt; be sure it is garlic powder.
