Ham-Cheddar Cheese Ball
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling
Easy to make - it was THE HIT of all the appetizers for the Super Bowl. Will make again.
Heather and those of you that can’t use nuts to roll it in, here’s a few suggestions: crisp crumbled bacon, pretzel food processed to desired crumb, ritz crackers or pita crackers crushed to desired crumb size
Sounds great!!! Definitely will be making it for my ball party this coming Sunday!To Heather - Jan 23 asked for suggestionsPs - for those that can’t have nuts.I will cover my cheeseball with Ritz crackers or pita crackers. ( food processor till crumbling , not too fine.Elaine.
Have never made it with those French's Dried Onions but give it a try. They come in a can on our canned vegetable aisle. Give them a little "crush" and sprinkle them over your football shape.
Anyone have a suggestion as to what I could substitute for the pecans all over the cheeseball/football? I have to be careful with any nuts, so was wondering what other kind of crunchy thing I could put all over the cheeseball???
Superbowl isn't so popular in Guadalajara, Mexico, where soccer is king. I made this today, leaving out the ham for our vegetarian guests, but found it a bit bland. So we tossed in some canned chipotles and fresh cilantro for zip, processed it all and shaped the football. The younger crown ate it with corn ships and absolutely loved it! Great idea, fun recipe. Thanks!
This is very tasty. I served to a few guys watching a football game. They loved it! I would definitely make it again. Might add a little kick to it like worcheshire sauce next time. Pecans were a nice addition.
