I received this party-perfect recipe from the wife of one of my co-workers. Everyone loves the delicious yet simple blend of cheeses, Worcestershire sauce, onions, parsley and pecans.—Carol Hawley, Frederick, Maryland


  • 12 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 cup process cheese sauce
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans, divided
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley, divided
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Assorted crackers


  1. In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, blue cheese and cheese sauce. Add 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup parsley, onion and Worcestershire sauce; mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. Shape into two balls. Combine the remaining pecans and parsley; roll cheese balls in pecan mixture. Wrap in plastic; refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Serve with crackers.
