Tanta's Holiday Cheeseball

Samantha Dean


Everyone seems to have their own favorite way to make a cheeseball. Here is mine....

pinch tips: How to Grate Cheese for Easy Clean Up



15 Min


No-Cook or Other


1 box
cream cheese
1/2 pkg
knox vegetable soup mix
1 jar(s)
dried beef chipped
1 c
pecans, in pieces

Directions Step-By-Step

Lay out wax paper and spread chopped pecans on top of it. Set aside.
Soften cream cheese.
Finely chop dried beef.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix together cream cheese, dried chopped beef and 1/2 a pack of vegetable soup mix (if you add the whole thing it really overpowers the cheese). Mix very well to blend all ingredients. Don't worry if you cream cheese is a little mushy, it makes it easier to mix and you are going to chill it back to firm anyway.
Roll into ball shape. Roll cream cheese ball on top of nuts to coat the outside well. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Serve with your choice of crackers.
