How To Make cheese ball/spread

  • 1
    In large bowl combine cream cheese, minced onion, minced garlic, tobacco and Worcestershire until blended well.
  • 2
    Add Cheddar cheese and olives.
  • 3
    Fold in Blue cheese last so as to not smooth the crumbles too much.
  • 4
    If you want a spread and this consistency is not what you desire, add a little milk until your desired thinness is reached.
  • 5
    Spoon into bowl or container of your choice. form into a ball if you like that presentation better. I've used crushed nuts on the outside and it is good. If in a bowl you can thinly slice olives and put a layer of shredded cheddar then olives on top. it is a pretty presentation.
