"I Added In Some Chopped Ham, Onion, Left Out The Mustard And Worcestershire Sauce...Found Both Made It Unpleasant.. And Used A Teaspoon to Taste Of Vegeta Chicken Stock Powder Instead"~!....Much Better.....

This is a crowd pleaser! I recently made it again but added chopped fresh chives. It was a nice alternative.

This cheese ball is now a family favorite. It's come to point where I have to make one for Christmas and Thanksgiving because my male cousins swarm around it upon its "unveiling". I don't tell them that the recipe actually makes two- one for them and one for me !
