This is the first cheese ball I ever made. It is so yummy it will be the only recipe I will ever need. I read the reviews before making it. I read from a lot that the ranch was too much so I only added 1/2 the package & 1/2 the worcestershire sauce. It is DELICIOUS!!! One of my kids can't stand cream cheese & he loves this!! This will be great for holiday parties. Thank You!!
I had to make a few adjustments to make this cheese ball turn out correctly. At first I followed the recipe to a 'T' (but only added about 1/2 tablespoon of worcestershire sauce, b/c I felt the entire tablespoon would be too much). Even the 1/2 tablespoon turned out to be too much -- that and the ranch was all we could taste. I ended up having to add another 8 ounces of cream cheese to it, and that really helped. You could actually taste the other flavors. I didn't have any pecans so I ended up using almonds instead, which worked very well. All in all -- the cheese ball was very tasty and my family loved it, but be sure to add extra cream cheese and less worcestershire sauce, b/c it ends up being really overwhelming.
Very Good! I used 2 packages of cream cheese and we thought it was just right! Thanks for sharing.
Perhaps there's a typo in the ingredients, I am certain it needs 16oz of cream cheese, not 8. VERY STRONG flavor, and I usually like salty things - but not this. I added more cream cheese, and used only half as much worcestershire sauce. I ended up adding a couple tbs of mayo and a tsp milk so soften it, so my crackers don't break when I dip into it. (Could use sour cream as well). Added a small handful of cooked bacon too. It became edible, but as-is, I unfortunately feel this recipe is not a keeper.
Fanatastic cheese ball, always requested and always gone in a heartbeat. Only variation is I roll it in minced real bacon (Hormel or OM).
I made this for a luncheon I catered and the girls loved it!!! One even said it was the best cheeseball she's ever had. I didn't use as much ranch as the recipe called for as I thought that might be too overpowering. I served with Ritz Social Wheat crackers. Thanks for posting!
Super easy and delicious! I took it to a family gathering and it was a huge hit! Someone else made a cheese ball as well, I watched people try the other one and go back to the one I brought!
A little too much ranch taste for us, I would cut it down next time, but fast and easy to do. Makes a lot, I made it into two smaller balls and froze one.
Great cheese ball !! Easy and yummy !
This was great...I made it for a New Year's Eve party and everyone LOVED it...I did add ham pieces to it but other than that, followed the recipe!! I will be making this again!! THANKS!!! :)
