Cheese Ball Recipe

Need a great cheese ball recipe?  Once you start eating this cheese ball …. you can’t stop!  It’s addictive! 

I make this cheese ball recipe for every party and holiday and everyone loves it.  When I make it for just the two of us, I divide the mixture in half and make two smaller cheese balls.  They will keep several days in the refrigerator so this is a good make-ahead recipe when your schedule is really busy.
