Aunt Sue's Smoky Cream Cheese Cheese Ball

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by I_Cook_For_Firemen

A family favorite for years and years: it's just not Christmas/New Years/Easter without Aunt Sue's cheese ball. She borrowed the recipe from a co-worker at the telephone company YEARS ago and has adopted it as her own. Easy. Quick. DELISH. If you want a fancier version, use cream cheese, worchester, accent, green onions....but substitute proscuito for the beef and add chopped roasted red peppers and minced black olives.

Delicious! I left out the Accent seasoning. I think the pkg size for the beef is a mistake as the Buddig beef comes in a 2 oz not 12 oz pkg (and 2 oz was plenty!) I used pecan chips instead of walnuts and low-fat cheese. I also refrigerated the cheese ball overnight before rolling in the nuts which made it less messy of a process. Thanks for sharing!
