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!!!

How to Make Cheese ball/spread


  • 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.
  • 7Enjoy!!!
