Well I guess I took a little unplanned hiatus for the last couple o’ weeks! Work and life has been crazy-busy, as it always is this time of year, so we’ve been eating a lot of take-out and I’ve just been too exhausted to cook – let alone try to take decent photographs and write. Even though I adore my time blogging, sometimes you just need a breather to feel refreshed and ready to get back at it.
So, I’m back baby! Back with one of my favorites for the holidays, my go-to cheesey ball! While the ingredients in this here cheese-ball are super simple, it’s really flavorful thanks to the Worcestershire sauce – and this is a great base for adding whatever extra yummy ingredients you want. Green olives, pimentos, blue cheese, garlic, jalapenos, fresh herbs – whatevs! You really can’t go wrong with this easy-peasy recipe.
1 8 oz package cream cheese
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar
3 sliced green onions
2 tbs worcestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Let the cream cheese soften first. Then combine all of the ingredients except for the chopped walnuts. Mix really well, then form into a ball. Roll the ball through the walnuts so the entire surface is covered. Voila! My fave cheese ball! I love to serve with the dill, sea salt and olive oil triscuits, but obviously whatever floats your boat cracker-wise will work just fine. Happy Holiday partyin’!
