Bob wanted a cheese ball for Christmas day so when we got to WinCo I went looking for one and of course they were all gone so I googled “Easy Cheese Ball” and this one came up. It certainly was easy. I haven’t had any, cheese balls really aren’t my thing, but Bob said it was good although he wasn’t too enthusiastic about it. The recipe comes from “All Recipes”.
2 (8 oz each) packages cream cheese, softened
1 (1 oz) package ranch dressing mix
2 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans (one of the reviews said that bacon bits were better so that’s what we rolled this one in)
Mash cream cheese is bowl then mix in dressing mix and cheddar cheese. Shape mixture into a ball and roll in nuts or bacon bits. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
