Bleu Cheese Ball

Pat Duran


This is a great way to serve your cheese ball during November and December holiday. Especially, because you can make the cheese ball the day before and garnish it just before serving, next day.
I saw this idea on-line and thought it would be a great way to serve my Blue Cheese Ball. You can do this with any of your own cheese ball recipe or try this one- it's very good.
Recipe from my cookbook II- about 1983.
