This is a cheese ball that is great for an appetizer at a party. You can dress is up with nuts on the outside or a little extra hot pepper sauce for that extra zing!!

This is a great appetizer and so easy to make. I made a couple of adjustments. I added garlic, onion powder and green olives w/pimentos. I took this to our xmas party & it was gone in no time & received lots of compliments. Thank you.

This is very similar to my mother in law's recipe, although she uses worchestershire instead of hot sauce. It's soooo good! I usually have to make two at parties because it goes so fast.

I make this with dried beef (that comes in a jar) and it is great.Very low priced cheese ball yet loaded with flavor and super easy.I mix with a fork rather than a mixer.If concerned about salt, rinse and dry the beef prior to chopping as the beef in the jar is salty.
