Corned Beef Cream Cheese Ball

Sarah Ryan


This is always requested by my friends and family. So easy and super yummy! I actually don't make it into a ball shape anymore, but I still call it that.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Who doesn't love a good cheese ball? This is an easy one for St. Patrick's Day. The creamy cream cheese and savory corned beef is a super combination. Green onions, along with the citrus lemon juice, add some freshness. Horseradish gives it a nice zing. You won't be able to stop munching on this.

Note: After chilling for 30 minutes, this is ready to eat but it will be more like a dip. If you want to form it into a cheese ball, we suggest chilling it for a few hours before unmolding it. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
