Cheese Ball Recipe

Posted on by Patrick

Every year for the holidays I make my favorite appetizer: a ham and onion cheese ball. I learned the recipe from my dad and I’m going to share it with you.

You will need:

3-4 packages of Philadelphia Cream Cheese ( I do not recommend the fat free version for this )

8-16 oz deli shaved ham

1 bunch green onions

Garlic Salt ( optional )

How to make it:

  1. Chop green onion

  2. Chop ham

  3. Thoroughly mix cream cheese, onion and ham in bowl. ( Optionally sprinkle with garlic salt )

  4. Place mixture on serving platter

At this point you can use a flipper to smooth over the outside of the ball to remove finger and hand prints.

Once complete, it should look something like this:

cheeseball

I recommend serving with Ritz. Enjoy!
