My daughter Karen created this cheese ball recipe and we
have enjoyed it thoroughly over the years.
It is a fine blend of texture and taste.
Instead of snacking crackers, I decided to serve Welsh Cakes.
Not everyone enjoyed the sweetness of glazed mixed fruit
in the cakes in combination with cheese ball.
I quite liked it.

Arrange your favorite assortment of crackers around the
cheese ball.  This amount represents only half of the recipe.


1 pkg. (8oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup cheese spread, such as cheese whiz
1 tbsp. parsley flakes
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
½ tsp. garlic powder
½ onion salt
½ tsp. seasoned salt

In a small mixing bowl or food processor, combine cheeses, mixing well.
Add remaining ingredients and mix until thoroughly blended.
Line a small bowl with plastic wrap; spoon cheese mixture into bowl.
Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or until firm.
Unmold cheese ball and roll in chopped nuts if desired.
Place on serving plate; serve with assorted crackers.
Variation: add 1 pkg. (3oz.) finely diced chipped beef to cheese ball.
Yield: about 3 cups spread


  1. why does all the food look so scrumptious!!!!

  2. I made a double recipe for refreshment time after our church children's Christmas program. Only a little left because we ran out of crackers. Lots of compliments!
