Country Ham Cheese Ball

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Jess_FinsUp

This is very similiar to one offered by one of the local grocery stores here. Except they charge you almost $10.00 for it. Our family always makes an assortment of "finger foods" for our get-togethers. This is a good choice for grazing at a party! Please note that the prep/cook time does not include refrigeration time.

I'm a country ham fiend, and really enjoyed this 'ham ball!' I think a friend of mine makes one very similar, but I've never asked for the recipe, and now, I don't have too! I think the secret is the liquid smoke...Thanks fro sharing, Jess_FinsUp!
