How to Make Evelyn's Cheeseball


  1. Mix all together and form into a ball. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate a few hours or overnight. Serve with your favorite crackers. (note will have to guess at measurement for garlic salt and salt--I eyeball half of a 1/4 teaspoon when measuring the spices.
  2. OPTIONAL STEP--If you want the appearance to be a little more attractive, I suggest rolling the ball in about a cup of finely chopped nuts (you can lightly toast them)
