Ingredients For the disappearing cheese ball

  • 2, 8-ounce pkg
    cream cheese (softened but not whipped)
  • 2-3
    green onions (scallions), diced, green and white parts
  • 1 pkg
    dried beef (in the little jars or packaged)
  • 1 Tbsp
  • topping (optional)...chopped pistachios, cashews, etc.

How To Make the disappearing cheese ball

  • 1
    Take cream cheese out of fridge for an hour to soften. Dice the green onions finely. Chop the dried beef finely.
  • 2
    Add the cream cheese, green onions, dried beef, and Accent. Mix thoroughly. (This might be messy, but it's much easier to mix just using clean, dry hands!)
  • 3
    Form into a ball. Roll in desired topping (if any). I like to use chopped pistachios, but use your favorite.
