“The caraway seeds add a nutty, rustic flavor that complements the sharp tang of the cheddar. My mother always made this for family Christmas parties, and it remains my all-time favorite recipe for cheese balls.” - by JLamb36

"OMG, I looove this this cheese ball!!! I make cheese balls all the time for parties because they are easy and who doesn't like cheese! :) This is by far the best cheese ball recipe I have found. If ..." See moreyour not familliar with caraway seeds, they are very flavorful and are similar to the flavor of rye bread. I used extra virgin olive oil & some cabernet I had instead of the sherry. I also added an extra TSP of caraway seeds inside of the ball and rolled it as I always do in a mixture of walnuts and fresh chopped parsley. I made mine for a halloween party so I also added a few drops of red dye which gave it a fancy port-wine look. This cheese ball got devoured at my party and received many compliments. Delicious! Thank you!!! :) ;)"

I also rolled it in a combo of caraway and walnuts, b..." See moreecause I ran out of caraway seeds, but I wish I'd had enough of them because the way it looks in the picture above is so unique. I would definitely make this tasty cheeseball again, or I would run with the idea of adding caraway seeds to my usual recipe. Thank you!"
