Course Cheese ball
Cuisine Appetizer
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 16 oz cream cheese two 8 oz packages
  • 1 cup generous shredded cheese of choice I prefer a 4 cheese blend
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar optional
  • 1 Tbs dehydrated onion if you wish
  • 1 Tbs + 1 tsp Fresh diced/minced parsley
  • 1 1/2 Cups chopped pecans


  1. I used my kitchen-aid with the paddle attachment. You can also mix it by hand.
  2. First soften cream cheese at room temperature until it is a creamy blend-able texture and won't clump. Mix the cream cheese together well until it's creamy.
  3. Next add all the other ingredients in the bowl and blend together very well. Make sure all the seasonings are distributed throughout the cheese ball.
  4. You can form your cheese ball immediately or let it sit in the refrigerator for a half hour or so to firm it up. Form the mixture into a ball and coat with pecans.
  5. Chill until serving.
  6. Serve with your favorite crackers or veggies! Yum!
