Easy Cheese Ball

 Happy ALMOST Christmas friends!  Can you believe it has snuck up on us already?  I am so ready.  Ready to celebrate the birth of my Lord and Savior, ready for family, ready to enjoy simple things and great food.

Speaking off......

Last weekend we had Christmas at my dad's house.  One of my sisters brought these cheeseballs from a little grocery store in Tilden, NE.  WOOHOOO for Tilden!  I was tempted to call them, give them my best sappy story to get the recipe, but that is no fun.  I wanted to try and recreate it myself!

Here is what I came up with!

1, 8oz block of cream cheese

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, DIVIDED

1/2-1 tsp all purpose seasoning (I used adobe)

Salt and pepper to taste

In a medium bowl, add in all ingredients (only 1 cup of the cheese for this part).  Start with 1/2 tsp of seasoning, you can always add more.  Use a hand mixer as it allows you to break down the shredded cheddar into smaller bits, making a more cohesive mixture.  Use remaining 1 cup of shredded cheddar, and sprinkle on a sheet of plastic wrap.  Add your dip mixture to the top, wrap it around, twist the ends and refrigerate for 1 hour at least.  This can be done the day before easily!  Take out of the fridge 15 minutes before serving!

Serve with club crackers, or any cracker.  Maybe even some crostini!
