“This recipe is our family's holiday favorite. Grandma usually doubles the recipe otherwise it won't last long! The ball can be rolled in ground nuts, bacon bits, or left plain -- it's up to you!”

This recipe is always a hit with my family and friends. I make it without the MSG and onion salt. I always double this recipe, because it's never enough, use 2 green onions, 1 1/2 Tblsp. Worchesteshire sauce and the "family size" pack of dried beef. Reserve a little of the beef to roll the ball in...it makes a pretty presentation. Great with wheat crackers!



Yummmm! This is my husband'd favorite year after year. It'a always the first one gone. This is such good stuff for such an easy recipe to do. The directions don't say it but that you have to rinse the salt from the beef first and then chop the beef into tiny pieces. I reserved some of the chopped dried beef to roll the finished balls in. Great with veggie sticks, Wheat Thins Big crackers and Triscuit crackers. I made two smaller cheese balls. A keeper ... great meat and cheese ball recipe!



This is the worst recipe I have ever tried! It sounded great & I made it for an OFFICE TEA-it was so bad that everyone threw it out!I knew it didn't taste good to me, but it was to late to do anything but take it-I would not recommend anyone trying this, you will be wasting Cream Cheese & Dried Beef.
