    History Teacher's Note:

    This is my most requested recipe. We have it at every family function, and it always goes fast. I often double the recipe, making one really large cheese ball. I got this from my mother, who got it from an old cookbook. It really is simple and delicious. You will never want to make another cheese ball. Enjoy!

    Serves: 12


    cheeseb ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Dice the dried beef into small pieces. This is dependent upon how small you want your dried beef to be. I usually dice mine into 1/4" squares (approx.), but others like it more finely diced.
    2. 2
      Dice/mince the green onions.
    3. 3
      Add all of the ingredients to the softened cream cheese in a medium sized bowl. Stir. (I usually use my clean hands for this; a wooden spoon also works with a bit more effort). The ingredients should be consistent throughout the cheese ball.
    4. 4
      Wrap in plastic wrap. Store in the fridge for at least 6-8 hours. This is one of those recipes that is at its best after sitting overnight. This way, the flavors really blend.
    5. 5
      Serve with crackers. My family likes Wheat Thins, but it really goes with any type of cracker. Enjoy!

      Very salty.. Did not care for this at all. Followed the recipe exactly. Very disappointed.

      I made this as described for New Years Eve this year and it was FANTASTIC!!!! (I did add Cheddar cheese around the ball to add to its' look). At the party, I literally put it down with Ritz crackers around it and came back 10 minutes later and it was almost completely GONE - no kidding- this is the fastest an appetizer of mine has gone... (Could have been people starving at that moment -but there really was a lot of food...????) - Anyways- really good- I recommend this" old standard with a small twist of mayo" (I used Hellmann's) for any party. THANKS!

      This IS fantastic! The flavor is awesome and exactly what I was looking for! Made just as posted, except I put it into a container to use as dip instead of shaping it into a cheeseball. In order for it to be thinner like a dip, I added 1-2 Tbs. milk. Thanks for posting!
