How to Make Holiday Cheese Ball

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine first 8 ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well with hands.
  2. Shape into a large ball, or a few smaller balls.
  3. Place olive slices around the cheese ball and then roll the ball in pecan pieces and parsley. (The olive slices look like tiny wreaths all around the cheese ball, and the parsley gives it a nice, bright appearance). Wrap in wax paper or plastic wrap and refrigerate. Let it warm to room temp before serving.
    Serve with assorted crackers (my favorite is sesame crackers). And I usually decorate the cheese platter with my recipe for Christmas Holly.
