A friend of mine Toni Summers started bringing in beef and onion cheese ball for food pitch ins at work. She had tweaked her recipe a few times and knowing that I liked horseradish she started incorporating that into the recipe as well. Cheese ball recipes are nice because you can tweak them to your own preferences. I switch out the type of onion I use in recipes. Sometimes I use green spring onions other times I might use a sweet or just a plain yellow or white onion. That is the beauty of cooking...the sky is the limit! Here is the recipe I currently use when making a beef and onion cheese ball.
Beef and Onion Cheese Ball
8 ozs cream cheese, soften ( I use reduced fat)
4 ozs chipped beef I use Buddig (chopped into small pieces)
1 tsp Seasoned salt
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 bunch green onion (chopped tops too)-This is where you
switch out your onions for different taste profile
1/4 c shredded cheddar cheese - optional
1 T horseradish (prepared)- optional
Mix all ingredients together. Shape into a ball or you can just leave in covered container. Refrigerate for an hour at least.
Serve with your favorite cracker or veggies.
