sketch of Bob above the Cheese Ball recipe.

If you ever wondered how to make those tasty cheese balls covered with chopped walnuts that cost an arm and a leg at the supermarket...Have no fear we have the walnut cheese ball recipe right here for you...and you get to control how much horseradish goes into your cheese ball!


2 pkg. (8 oz. ea.) cream cheese, softened
3 T. blue cheese, crumbled
1 T. grated onion
1 T. horseradish

Blend all ingredients together. Put a little olive oil on your hands (so the cheese won't stick to them), form into a cheese ball and roll in crushed walnuts to cover. You can garnish with red and green cherry halves for a holiday appetizer. Serve with 2-3 sleeves of your favorite crackers.
