This is my middle SIL's recipe, she Is a good cook, we really like this one!
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, finely shredded
- 1 green pepper, finely chopped
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- chopped nuts (optional)
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
- Form into a ball.
- Roll in nuts if you choose.
- Tastes best on Ritz-type or a sesame cracker.
This makes a very nice cheese appetizer. I especially liked the sharp cheddar and Worcestershire sauce combination. The cream cheese made it creamy. I used chopped pecans which gave it another layer of flavor. Thanks, Teresa, for sharing you SIL's recipe. It will be used again in this house.
I made a few changes because I'm snowed in and couldn't get out for the ingredients. I used 5 ounces cheddar, 3 ounces monterrey jack and instead of a green pepper I used red. Also, I didn't have any lemon juice on hand so I used a Tablespoon of red wine.. YUM! Thanks for a good and versatile recipe.
This was very good and easy to make. I served it with melba toast rounds. The creamy cheese ball was very complimenting to the crunch of the toast. I think I will use the left overs to make stuffed mushrooms tomorrow!
