This was a classic my grandmother made and my husband's family made it for holidays as well. I won't share what his 'darling' brother refers to it as though he will eat it right up! This is an easy cheese ball to make and it's savory and creamy. I've been known to add a bit of roasted garlic to it and that nutty sweetness just rounds out the flavors.
