The Wendts Make a Cheese Ball Recipe

Isn't that a surprise? The Wendts made a cheese ball at a get together.

My parents were in town last night for a quick visit, and my sister Robin had raved about this particular cheese ball that they had made over Easter. I decided we must try it, so mom and I whipped it up, using what I had on hand.

This was amazing! I really think the addition of the freshly grated Parmesan is what really takes this cheese ball to the next level. This can also be rolled in diced ham to finish, but we didn't have quite enough ham left.

Use your favorite combination of cheeses, or even try slender sliced corned beef if you like.

1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1 6 oz pkg slender sliced smoked ham, diced finely
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup finely shredded Mozzarella
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1 T minced onion
hot sauce to taste

In a medium bowl, mix ingredients. Taste and adjust as desired.

Shape mixture into a ball onto a serving plate. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

We served the cheese ball with Wheat Thins and Club Crackers. Triscuits would be great too.
