I LOVE cheese balls and crackers.  They are always a croud pleaser at family get togethers.  The thing you have to watch out for is putting it out too early.  If you’re not careful, your guests will fill-up on the cheese ball and crackers and not have room for dinner.  I love the display of this cheese ball found at Gluesticks.  For instructions, go here.

Thanksgiving Turkey Cheese Ball

Gluesticks has a great recipe for a ranch cheese ball on her site.  My favorite cheese ball is a green onion cheese ball and it is super easy to make. 

Green Onion Cheese Ball Recipe

  • 1 bunch Green Onions
  • 2 packages Cream Cheese
  • 2 tsp Bon Appetit Seasoning
  • Toasted Almonds
Let cream cheese get to room temperature. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese, green onions and Bon Appetit seasoning.  Mix well. Then form into ball. Roll in almonds. Chill.
I use 1/3 less fat cream cheese and mix everything  using a hand mixer to ensure even distribution.
