Recipe by Gabbys Mommy06

My mom gave me this recipe years ago. I don't think I've ever made this and not had someone ask for the recipe. I have had more "Can you make your cheese ball?" requests than I care to count. I don't really mind though because it is super easy for a party and mighty tastey.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, 2-3 pkgs room temp (3 will make 2 good sized balls and 2 will make 1 large ball with lots of flavor)
  • 1 (3 1/2 ounce) jar Kraft pimento spread
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (seperated)
  • 1 (8 ounce) packagethin sliced beef lunch meat (I get the Carl Budding kind in the deli section I really don't know the exact package size. It's usu)
  • 2 green onions (use both white and green)


  1. Make sure cream cheese is room temperature or it is a pain to mix.
  2. Finely chop beef and green onions.
  3. Mix cream cheese, pimento spread, 1 cup of the cheddar, beef and onion well.
  4. Roll into ball(s).
  5. Roll ball(s) in remaining cheddar (If you're making more than one ball you will probably need more cheese.
  6. Refrigerate (The longer it refrigerates the better the flavors come together, but is good right away too.).
