Classic Cheese Ball

Classic Cheese Ball

It’s kind of dealer’s choice after that, but I prefer to start a cheese ball with some fundamentals like cream cheese, a really sharp cheddar, and some crunchy veggies! I say go ahead and try new things! Use your favorite tastes to personalize this.

Ingredients for cheese ball

  1. One pound, split into two blocks
  2. Eight ounces of shredded strong cheddar cheese and softened cream cheese
  3. Minced green bell pepper, half a cup
  4. 4 chopped scallions
  5. Two tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice (about one little lemon)
  6. One spoonful of sauce from Worcestershire
  7. one tsp powdered garlic
  8. 1 cup of pecans, chopped, for rolling

To assist:

  • Crackers
  • Raw veggies like radishes or celery sticks
  • Chips


Form the cheese ball:

  • Combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, scallions, bell pepper, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder in a big bowl. Using a large fork, mash the ingredients together. Taste and modify flavors to your preference.

Get the pecans ready:

  • Spread your pecans evenly in a layer on a sanitized surface, such as a chopping board.

Roll the cheese ball:

  • Divide the mixture into two equal parts, roughly. Scoop out one half with a big spatula or your clean hands, then form into a ball.
  • On top of the chopped pecans, place the cheese ball. Coat the cheese ball entirely by gently rolling it in the pecans with your hands or some plastic wrap.
  • Continue with the second cheese ball.
