I love cheese and the more cheese the better. These cheese balls are loaded with some amazing cheese and the horseradish makes them pop. They also freeze very well.


  •   2 pkg
    (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
  •   2 c
    shredded sharp cheddear cheese (i use the fancy shredded cheese)
  •   2 c
    shredded mild cheddar cheese (fancy type)
  •   4 oz
    crumbled blue cheese
  •   4 1/2 tsp
    prepared horseradish (i use our homegrown)
  •   1 tsp
    worcestershire sauce
  •   1/8 to 1/4 tsp
    onion powder
  •   1/4 tsp
    garlic powder
  •   1/3 c
    finely chopped pecans, toasted
  •   1/3 c
    chopped pine nuts or any other type of nut you like

How To Make

  • 1
    In a large bowl, combine the cheeses, horseradish, worcestershire sauce, onion and garlic powder. Shape into two balls. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • 2
    Toast your nuts, cool.
  • 3
    Combine the nuts, if you did not toast them together; press the nuts into your two cheese balls. I usually put the nuts in a large bowl and then I roll the cheese ball around pressing to make sure it is completely covered.

    If you freeze a cheese ball for later, remove it from the freezer one hour before serving.
