I made this for the Super Bowl and it was a major hit. I made a variation that worked out well. I combined all of the ingredients except the hot sauce. Then I divided it into four and added a different hot sauce, ranging from Roasted Garlic to INSANITY, to each one. I then made four mini balls. That way, I had a cheese ball for everyone's taste. If you do this, note that you will need more pecans. Maybe a cup. Also, make sure you keep track of which ball has which hot sauce. I labeled mine, both on the baggie in the fridge and on the platter.


Since I didn't have any crackers handy, I decided to make a dip instead of a cheese ball. I used 6 oz. cream cheese and added a cup of sour cream. I also added a little extra of the celery and onion (maybe 1 tbsp. each?). If you like more blue cheese, you could add it. The "dip" was fantastic! Several asked for the recipe!


This is delicious. I wanted to make something interesting for Christmas and ended up making more for New Years. My children, who love blue cheese yet don't like onions, found it irresistable. I never had time to put pecans on it, did not matter. I also tried more spice on the second batch and found it just as appealing. TRY THIS for something new and delicious!
