This recipe has been a family favorite for some time. Every family get together I ask my mother-in-law, “What should we bring?” She always responds, “Your cheese ball, please.”
If you make this for your next get together, be prepared for the crowd to be blown away. Everyone will think you bought this from the store and when you tell them you made it, they won’t believe you. FACT!
- 6 oz cream cheese
- 2 oz blue or gorgonzola cheese (your choice)
- 1/8 teaspoon crushed garlic
- 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
- sprinkle of salt and white pepper
- 1/4 cup chopped almonds
In a small bowl, combine room temperature cream cheese with room temp. gorgonzola or blue cheese, garlic, Worcestershire, salt and pepper. Once blended together, place into refrigerator for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, scrape the mixture from the bowl and roll between hands into a ball. Roll in chopped nuts. At this point you can serve it with crackers or crustini. You can also wrap in plastic wrap and place back into the fridge to serve later. Will last wrapped up for about a week or two in fridge.
