Green Onion and Dried Beef Cheese Ball

Just a quick post today for the tasty cheese ball I made.  A simple dried beef and onion version.  I did add a bit of horseradish just to zip it up and rolled it in some pecans.  I divided mine into 4 pieces and made mini cheese balls but you could make one regular size one if desired.

  • 1 package cream cheese
  • 2 green onions ~ sliced
  • 1 small jar dried beef ~ diced
  • 1 Tbs horseradish
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese
  • finely chopped pecans to roll ball in if desired

Combine all ingredients except for pecans.  Form into one or several balls or roll into a log. Roll in pecans if desired or use a little extra green onion or maybe come extra dried beef to coat the outside.  Serve with crackers or toasty bread.

Tex-Mex Cheese Ball

With our busy schedules we enjoy snacking some evenings.  Charles has some time off work so I’ve left him to do the creating.  This was awesome.  In fact with a little summer sausage or bacon pieces on the crackers too it’s even more amazing!

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/4 tsp salt
