I received this recipe from a very dear friend a few years before she passed away..I was never a cheeseball fan until she had me to try this one...I fell 'head over heels in love' is the ONLY cheeseball I eat. It is requested for all holiday/family functions...My D-I-L's mother even called me a few years back and ordered 12 of these if I was willing to make them for her and some of her friends!! AND since she stated they wanted small to medium sized balls, I was able to mix 4 recipes and got a total of 14 cheeseballs from it!! I kept 1 for myself and 1 for D-I-L's sister and sold them their 12 for a $100 profit and approx. 2-2 1/2 hrs work!! **The original recipe called for this to be shaped into a ball and wrapped in foil. I personally did not like the messy look of that. Since I make these for holiday and family gatherings, and even as gifts I wanted them to be a pretty presentation..I have many clear cut-glass bowls in various sizes and shapes that I put this in then cover with the extra diced meat, cover w/ plastic wrap and chill..If I am gifting it , the bowl is part of the gift.
