CRUNCHY CHEESE BALL
I make a double batch for parties all yr round, and single about once a month just for us; I always have an empty plate left! It WILL keep about 2 weeks in fridge if covered with plastic, but there's usually nothing left to save! My family loves it, even the kids...
8 ozcream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cmiracle whip salad dressing (can use lite)
1 can(s)underwood deviled ham
1 tspminced onion (i use dehydrated flakes)
1 Tbspdried parsley flakes
·chopped walnuts or pecans
How to Make CRUNCHY CHEESE BALL
- In bowl, cream together the cheese and Miracle Whip until well mixed.
- Blend in deviled ham, onions and parsley flakes.
- Roll mixture into a ball, then wrap in plastic and chill until firm, about 4 hours.
When firm, unwrap and roll in the chopped nuts. Serve with crackers, pretzels, bagel or pita chips.
- Note: I sometimes mix the nuts into the cheese ball for a different texture. Then you can garnish with a few more nuts or some more parsley flakes.
