This was really tasty. I used canned crab, swiss cheese and dried, minced onion. I also doubled the recipe (based on the recipe that said 1 cheeseball served 10 people) but only used the 3 T. of Old Bay (the seasoning can be a bit overpowering for my tastes). I also substituted crisp, crumbled bacon for the pecans. It was REALLY good, but I had a lot of leftovers. I will make this again, but don't know if the "10 servings" description was accurate.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mix crab meat, cream cheese, salad dressing, onions, shredded cheese and spices with a mixer.
  2. Chill mixture 1 hour.
  3. Mixture should be thick enough to shape into 2 balls or logs.
  4. Roll in the crushed pecans.
  5. Serve with crackers.
  6. I stated that it only feeds 10 because it's gone very quickly!
  7. Enjoy!
