Cheese ball season is here! Are you as excited as I am?! A few weeks ago I did a cheese ball making demonstration for the ladies at church and it was a big hit. We got to eat all of the wares with lunch and I was in cheese ball heaven.
My love of cheese balls came from my first job working at a deli in Columbus, Indiana. Two of the cheese ball recipes are actually from that deli and I've been making them for years. The other two are just as amazing (cue the bacon). I actually made mini cheese balls and "cracker packs" to put on my neighbor treat plates last Christmas and I think they were my most popular item. I put the how to for the mini cheese balls back in this post.
I hope this gets you excited for all of the parties coming up! Happy Holidays to you...
