Friday Feedbag: Cheesy Goodness


My grandmother was a great cook and wonderful at coming up with new or adapted recipes. Her cheese ball recipe is one my sister’s favorite things ever, and another one that we often have as part of holiday meals. One thing it definitely is not is healthy!

Bemama’s Cheese Ball

16 ounces grated cheddar cheese
8 ounces cream cheese
½ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup milk
½ cup sour cream
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
½ cup finely chopped pecans

Using food processor, pulse cheese in batches to chop into small pieces. Combine all ingredients in large bowl (stand mixer recommended) and mix until uniformly smooth (texture will be coarse). Refrigerate for several hours or overnight; remove, shape into 1 or 2 balls, and roll in chopped pecans. Serve with crackers.
