Super Amazing Deviled Ham Cheese Ball

Cheeseballs are okay, but this one is super amazing! I wish I could claim credit for this one, but once again it's from Craig's family recipe treasure trove. It stores well. Cooking time is chilling time. Caution: This is very addicting. I am not responsible for any pounds gained from eating this.

love this cheese ball. I do two additional things. I add a teaspoon of tobasco and instead of rolling it in pecans, I roll it in bacon bits.

I love this recipe, the only thing I did different was add 2 cloves of minced garlic

Thank you thank you!!! My mom always made her cheese balls with develed ham and never went by a recipe, I always watched her cook so know pretty much how to do everything like she use to. However I never learned how to make her cheese ball and this is it!! Thank you for helping me bring my dear mama's cheese ball back to our family.
