Cheese ball/spread

Stacey Avery


this is a recipe that I've been playing around with for a long time. You can thin it for a spread or leave it thick for a formed cheese ball. it's great on crackers, bread, on a steak or in a potato...very versatile. Try it!!!

16 oz
cream cheese
8 oz
cheddar cheese, shredded, mild
12 oz
blue cheese, crumbled
1/2 c
onion, white, chopped/minced fine
3 clove
garlic, minced
1 tsp
worcestershire sauce
4 dash(es)
tobasco sauce
1 1/2 c
olives, chopped fine. green, with pimento.
milk, if thinning desired


1In large bowl combine cream cheese, minced onion, minced garlic, tobacco and Worcestershire until blended well.
2Add Cheddar cheese and olives.
3Fold in Blue cheese last so as to not smooth the crumbles too much.
4If you want a spread and this consistency is not what you desire, add a little milk until your desired thinness is reached.
5Spoon 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.
6Refrigerate until ready to serve.
