We had a fantastic weekend that included Bella’s dance recital and a fun Father’s Day party! It was filled with lots of laughs and smiles and love…and of course, food. LOTS of food.
This was one of several great appetizers we had. This recipe makes enough for 2 cheese balls! I served one on Saturday, and brought one to my sister’s on Sunday. It was incredibly easy to make and is perfect if you need something you can make ahead of time.
Smoky Cheese Ball
slightly adapted from Better Homes and Gardens
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
2 cups shredded smoked cheese (I used Gouda)
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
Place cheeses and butter in a mixing bowl and combine. Add milk and Worcestershire sauce and mix on high until fluffy. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours.
Shape mixture into 2 balls. Cover each with nuts. Seal with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to eat. Serve with crackers.
