I'm very easy to please, but I was disappointed in this recipe. I liked the idea of using pepperoni, but the consistency didn't lend itself to making individual balls. That would have been a huge waste of time. It's possible to make it into one large ball or log, but again, it's lacking something in the consistency so this recipe, as is, would be best used as a bowl dip. I think I would eliminate most or all of the sour cream and butter and maybe try putting some dry Ranch mix or something similar in. EDIT: To be fair, after this was left in the refrigerator overnight, the consistency and taste were much, much better. You could probably roll it into individual balls, but spreading it on crackers is just fine.


The taste was kinda bland pepperoni is meant to be spicy, but the the sour cream spoils it, so i had to add some curry powder that added some zing.


for years i've been making a pepperoni cheese ball. Just Cream cheese softened, add pepperoni that has been thru the food processor. mix together and chill. Take extra pepperoni that has been through the food processor sprinkle on was paper. Ball cheese mixture and roll through grated pepperoni. No extra ingredients!!!! Everyone loves this and they will ask for the recipe and i tell them it's really complicated and hard to make!!!
