This cheese ball is AWESOME!!! Made it last Thanksgiving and forgot to rate it. Came back to my saved recipes to make it again this year because it was such a big hit. It was completely GONE and everyone kept asking, "What's in this?" I do agree that it should be chilled BEFORE rolling it into the ball, otherwise it is very smooshy. I'll be taking this to Thanksgiving tomorrow and 2 other Christmas parties. Give it a try, it's DELICIOUS!!!
If I were to rate this personally I would give it 3 stars. I f I were to rate it by the reation of the folks i served it to i would give it 5. I didn't overly care for this cheese ball but others did to the extent of people hunting down the recipe. Here's what i didn't like: there should be instructions to chill for 4 hours BEFORE rolling into a ball as the mixture was impossible to roll. It was much too creamy to shape and the pecans just sunk in which ruined the presentation. Although the pecans were a festive touch i thought their flavor was overpowering for this and think that walnuts would be much beter. Also the cheese was very sharp. I think i should probably give it another shot.
Excellent! I made this for thanksgiving and Christmas.
Delicious cheese ball! The olives and blue cheese give it a rich flavor. This would go great from a football tailgate to a formal dinner party. This is definitely not a last-minute recipe, because you do need time to let it chill and firm up. However, it's worth the wait.
It was a big hit at our Thanksgiving gathering. I thought that it needed a little less blue cheese
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! We had a group of friends over tonight for appetizers and this cheese ball is out of this world delicious! I love the combination of cheeses along with the onion, worcestershire sauce, green olives and pecans. It is the perfect combination of tanginess and creaminess. Thanks, Annacia!
I made a small version of this to try it out and really enjoyed it with crackers. The olives really give it a kick! Thanks!
Mmmm this is very good! I love cheese balls but I'm the only one in the family who does so I reduced the amounts to 1/2 for most (except onion and garlic) so I wouldn't have too much to eat. Worked out just fine.
This is so simple and so good. The blue cheese adds a nice bite to this cheese ball. It's going on my holiday table, for sure. Thanks, Annacia.
I loved this. I made it for a little party I had and it didn't take long before it was all gone. I love the blue cheese in it! I will definitely be making this for other parties this holiday season. I made this recipe for 'ZaarTag.'
