This recipe for the Classic Cheese Ball is the perfect appetizer. Served with crackers or raw veggies it's a dish everyone loves.
In a large bowl mix together cream cheese, shredded cheese, green onions, and dry ranch mix. I used the good old fashion method and mixed it with clean hands, but you can also use a mixer with a paddle attachment.
Once mixed shape your cheese ball into a ball.
On a plate add chopped pecans. Roll cheese ball onto crushed pecans.
Cover cheese ball and place in the fridge to chill. Serve with crackers or raw veggies and enjoy.
I serve my cheese ball with crackers or raw veggies. Your favorite Ritz or Triscuit would be great. I love to put it on celery, peppers, and carrot sticks as well!
This cheese ball would be good in the fridge in a container or covered for 7-10 days.
Yes, you can freeze a cheeseball. In order to freeze a cheese ball follow these steps. A frozen cheese ball should last about a month.
Form your cheese ball as according to the directions, but stop at step three. Do not roll the cheeseball in nuts, chives, or anything else!
Wrap your cheese ball in plastic wrap, tightly. Place in a freezer zip-lock bag.
To unthaw, pull out of the freezer and place back in the refrigerator for roughly 6-8 hours before serving. Once thawed roll in nuts!
