    My Private Note


    Serves: 12-16


    cheese ...

    Units: US | Metric



    • 1 tablespoon crumbled crisp cooked bacon




    • 2 -3 maraschino cherries, halves (per each ball for mock holly berries)
    • 2 -3 snipped large bay leaves (per each ball, cut into holly leaf shape)


    1. 1
      WHIP all of the BASIC RECIPE ingredients in a mixing bowl until smooth and creamy. NOTE: You may also add the OPTIONAL and/or OPTIONAL FRESH HERB ingredients now: 1 tablespoon crumbled crisp cooked bacon (cook bacon wrapped in 2 sheets paper towels on a microwaveable plate for 6-10 minutes on 100% power and crumble when cooled), 2 tablespoons thinly snipped fresh chives (or) 2 tablespoons finely snipped fresh dill (or) 2 teaspoons minced fresh sage (or) 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme (or) 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary).
    2. 2
      DIVIDE cheese mixture in half; DUMP each cheese portion individually onto a sheet waxed paper; WRAP cheese balls completely using the waxed paper, twisting the tops to seal.
    3. 3
      FORM cheese mixture in waxed paper into ball shapes.
    4. 4
      PLACE into freezer until firm yet not frozen.
    5. 5
      ADD 2/3-3/4 cup chopped walnuts and 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives or parsley (or dried) into a medium bowl; COMBINE well.
    6. 6
      REMOVE cheese balls from freezer when firm and unwrap.
    7. 7
      SMOOTH cheese balls with clean dry hands until round and even.
    8. 8
      ROLL cheese balls lightly in nut and herb mixture until evenly covered (you may freeze cheese balls in freezer bags and thaw before serving).
    9. 9
      GARNISH cheese balls if desired for the holidays with a holly garnish (see photo) or prepare OPTIONAL HOLIDAY GARNISH: PLACE 2-3 maraschino cherry halves (each) closely on top of cheeseball; CUT 2-3 large bay leaves (each) into holly leave shapes and attach around cherries (you may tint bay leaf tops first with green food coloring using a small paintbrush, for a more dramatic color presentation).
    10. 10
      SERVE when tempered on or with crackers (I prefer the Triscuit Rosemary & Olive Oil variety); ENJOY!
