Easy Cheese Ball

Easy Cheese Ball

Chef Scott likes to make and serve this recipe, especially during the holidays.  This is a VERY easy recipe for elementary age kids to make and be proud of!

2 8-oz packages cream cheese (softened is easier to mash)
2 cups shredded cheddar (or favorite cheese)
2 packages chopped beef or ham (about 12 slices)
1 package powdered Ranch Dressing mix (our home recipe included below and in another note)
Nuts or herbs to roll cheese ball in. (optional)

Mix the first 4 ingredients together with a fork in a frosting bowl (small mixing bowl).  Roll into a ball, then roll in nuts or herbs.  Refrigerate for 1 hour prior to serving for best flavor. Serve with crackers or pretzel sticks. This is also good spread on celery sticks.

Ranch Dip Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
