Cheesy Cheese Ball

pamela griffin


This recipe came from a very good friend, Louise, that I worked with in 1980. Our family loves it. Anytime we get together they look for this to be served. My nephew, who is a senior in high school this year, learned how to make it so he could have some of it without it being a holiday. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our family has!
