So I know it's a bit late for International Cheeseball day (April 17th), but I introduced my family to the wonders of the cheeseball last night.
None of them knew what a cheeseball was, or what to expect.
Boy did they get a surprise - of the delicious kind!
As my whole family was munching on the yummy cheeseball I explained that the cheeseball is a staple of the office party.
That's when Terry and I got a little carried away with thinking about the power of the cheeseball at an office party. This is what came of it:
Yeah... I've got too much time on my hands and not enough drawing skills.
Anyway, here's what the actual cheeseball looked like:
It's really a Bacon/Ranch cheeseball.
And here's the easy recipe:
- 2 packages cream cheese
- ranch dressing (about 1/3 cup)
- real bacon bits (1 package or make your own)
- 2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- squish the cream cheese into a mash. Add the ranch dressing until the cream cheese become more spreadable. I think I used about 1/3 cup. Mix in grated cheese. Form a ball. Lay the bacon bits out on a plate. Roll the ball in the bacon bits to coat. Wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Spread on crackers and enjoy!
