Christmas Cheese Ball - Traditional holiday appetizer

I'm going to be posting my Christmas Tiny Food recipes this month and to start I decided to post the one thing you almost always see on a Holiday H'ors D'oeuvre table - the traditional Cheddar Cheese Ball rolled in pecans.

No, it's not fancy or gourmet - but the reason these are still popping up during the Christmas party season is that people like them! So don't miss out on a finger food with that comfort food touch and try my Cheese Ball out for the holiday season!

I'll be posting my Christmas Martinis this month too at The Martini Diva so stop by there and download those recipe cards for your holiday parties.

If you have a Tiny Food question, please feel free to ask me in a comment and I'll respond back here in the comments section or in a new post!

  1. I used 1 jar cheese spread with pimento. My son likes the sweet flavor. What is your suggestion on this!

  2. Jeremy - well, as far as flavor goes you can choose any cheese you want - but using a cheese spread from a jar instead of shredded cheese makes me wonder if your cheese ball went flat!

    Starting with two soft cheeses (the cream cheese and the spread instead of cream cheese and shredded cheese) would make your mixture extremely soft - though refrigerating it might help before you tried to form the ball.

    Anyway, good luck with your substitution!
