This was the best cheese ball I have eaten and everyone at our Thanksgiving table agreed, including ALL 12 children. No left overs here!!! Cathy

This had a good flavor but it was waaay too salty. I guess that can't be helped, it's in the chipped beef and that's a main ingredient. I thought it might be salty so I added more horseradish and some onion to try and cover it up. People at the party loved it though - everyone wanted the recipe. Go figure!

As written, I am only giving it 3 stars. My recipe only calls for 1 ONE jar of chipped beef. Sometimes, I also add a bit of chopped onion instead of horseradish.
