I have to share my favorite cheese ball recipe. It is so EASY and yummy cheezy!
1 pkg 1/3 less fat cream cheese (don't use the fat free stuff)
1 pkg ranch dressing mix (yep, the powered stuff by Hidden Valley Ranch)
1 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
tastey crackers to accompany
Let the cream cheese soften by sitting it out on the counter for approximately 30 minutes.
In small bowl stir in the ranch mix. And then add the finely shredded cheese.
Form cheese ball with cling-wrap and chill in fridge.
Here some other ways you can dress up this recipe.
add 1/4 finely chopped onion
1/4 cup bacon bits
1 tsp dill
So many tastey options for this simple recipe.
A special thanks to my brother-in-law Bill for sharing this with me! Our friends kindly refer to it as the "crack" cheese ball because it is very addictive.
