Serves:

Varied

Prep:

40 Min

Ingredients

2 pkg
(8 oz size) cream cheese, room temperature
1 jar(s)
(5 oz) kraft old english cheese
2 tsp
lemon juice
1 tsp
onion salt
1 tsp
garlic salt
1 Tbsp
parsley flakes
1 can(s)
shrimp, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 c
cheddar cheese, shredded
1 Tbsp
salad dressing (miracle whip type)
walnuts and/or pecans - chopped

OPTIONAL:

1 tsp
chives, dried
1 tsp
pimento, chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all ingredients EXCEPT the nuts in a large mixing bowl. Refrigerate until it is cold enough to mold into a ball and hold its shape.
2
Divide into two large cheese balls or four smaller sized balls. Roll in chopped nuts until completely coated. (I am a nut fan, so I like to make sure there is a very heavy layer of nuts on each ball.)
3
Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and keep refrigerated. Serve with a variety of snack crackers.
4
Note: I use salad-size frozen shrimp, thawed, rinsed, and cut into smaller pieces, for a less fishy flavor. It does not have as long a shelf life, but I think the flavor exchange is worth it.
