My Favourite Cheeseball Recipe of All Time

I know I’ve mentioned it before – but I’m a complete cheese addict. I really do think it just makes everything taste better.

So when my sister in law made this cheeseball for Christmas several years ago, I was a little embarrassed how much I ate (good thing she brought a few of them). It is SO good…and a perfect little appetizer/snack to take to a get together…or on a plate surrounded by Wheat Thins {or my new favourite, Breton White Bean crackers} for neighbour/friend gifts. Quick and easy to make…with only a few ingredients….it’s awesome. And instead of using the recipe to make one giant cheeseball, I usually make several small ones…easier to justify pulling one out and eating it in one sitting (oh yes I have!). They freeze well which is even better….and boy oh boy are they yummy!


How ca-ute is this pumpkin shaped cheeseball a friend of mine made!!! {she used elastics around the saran wrap while it chilled in the fridge!!}

8oz McLaren’s Cheese – softened at room temperature (Costco has the best price)

8oz Cream Cheese – softened at room temperature

Blend (I use beaters) well and add:

1/4 cup chopped green onion

1/3 cup chopped pecans

dash of garlic powder (maybe 1/4 tsp)

Chill, then shape into a ball (or however many you want) and roll in mixture of:

2 Tbsp chopped pecans (I pre-chop them with my handy chopper thing – I know, so technical)

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp paprika
