I learned how to make cheeseballs back in the 70's while attending UTA. I worked in the college cafeteria to support myself through college. I will never forget this "little" German woman named Liz who was the head salad maker taught me how to make them. This is an easy and delicious cheeseball recipe. You can also make this recipe as a CHEESE SPREAD. The photos are of a cheese spread I made for New Years.
