My aunt served this and it was a request everywhere!! You can make it well ahead of your gathering, wrap in plastic and let it age a few days. It can look very pretty when served and will make a holiday favorite they will look for on your table.

  2. Variations to roll the cheese ball in: nuts, diced black olives, fine chopped parsley, any favorite deli meat, shredded cheese. A thin sliced rough chopped provolone looks rustic with fresh made crackers.
