Philly Cheese Ball

Suzanne Marzano


This is an old recipe that I have been looking for so I could give to my niece who remembered it from when she was a little girl. The name refers to the brand of cream cheese, but I found notes that I deleted and add ingredients years ago. Since some are not crossed out I assume they are good. The recipe is basic but good. Using Miracle Whip gives it the kick it needs so no extra spices are needed. The horseradish is adjusted to taste or the horseradish sauce can be used if the real is to much (I use horsey sauce from Arby's) Enjoy
