Old School Cheese Ball

"Gotta love this recipe. . .totally from a past generation, but not forgotten. I make this frequently and got the recipe from a co-worker named Karen about 8 years ago. Simple, yet a crowd-pleaser; the kids will even eat it! I have frozen this cheese ball with great results, so feel free to make 1 for now and 1 for later - just don't roll it in nuts until it has been thawed out."

ingredients

  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese (not low fat or non-fat because it needs to be thick)
  • 1 (5 ounce) jar Kraft Old English cheese spread (sometimes I add an extra jar of this and make it into 2 balls)
  • 1 (5 ounce) jar Kraft roka blue spread
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (or more to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

directions

  • Let all three cheeses get to room temperature.
  • With a blender, mix together all ingredients EXCEPT the nuts.
  • Shape into 1 or 2 balls (I always do 2 so that there are more nuts to go around).
  • Roll each cheese ball in nuts, place on a piece of waxed paper and put in the fridge to set up.
  • Serve with buttery crackers on the side.

    Can you still buy the Kraft cheese jars?

    This is the cheeseball that my sweet Mama made when I was growing up (except she used the jarred Neufchatel cheese) and I loved it. I've been looking for this recipe for years. Thank you, thank you!

    My Mom made this recipe every year for the holiday snack bar and it reminds me of Christmas and New Year's Eve! Love it with Ritz Crackers!

    My grandma made this every holiday season. I make it now for my kids and family. TIP: Finely chop some green onions and cut up some corned beef and it takes it to another level.
