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.

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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Corned Beef Cream Cheese Ball

Test Kitchen Tips
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.


  1. Allow the cream cheese to soften to room temperature.
  2. Chop corned beef and green onions small using an electric chopper or food processor.
  3. Add corned beef, green onions, and cream cheese. Mix together.
  4. Mix in mayonnaise, lemon juice, Worcestershire, and horseradish to taste making it tangy.
  5. Refrigerate at least 1/2 hour until ready to serve with your favorite crackers.
