Dill, Cheddar & Green Onion Cheese Ball

Posted on

By omitting the sour cream and adding some cheddar cheese to my favorite dip, I invented quite a delicious cheese ball! Finely grated cheddar is ideal for a more uniform texture & appealing appearance, but making it with the thicker shreds didn’t make it any less tasty.

I’ll post the Creamy Dill & Green Onion Dip recipe next time I make it because I keep eating it so fast that I haven’t had a chance to take a photograph yet!

Dill, Cheddar & Green Onion Cheese Ball

Makes 1 small cheese ball (slightly larger than those sold in the supermarket). Double the recipe for a larger cheese ball.

1 (8-oz) package cream cheese, softened
2 finely chopped green onions
1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
1 t fresh parsley, chopped fine (optional)
½ t dill weed
¼ t garlic powder
½ t salt
1 cup chopped pecans

Mush everything but the nuts together with your hands until it is well combined, shape it into a ball and roll it in the chopped nuts. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate at least two hours or overnight and leave out of the fridge a few hours before serving.

  4. I just made this cheese ball for tonight’s New Years party and I made it with a twist. No dill, but a little of cilantro and mixed the pecans with Organic Golden Light Blue Agave sweetener and it is delicious! Thanks!
