Tasty Tuesday

Tuesday, December 30, 2008
I'm a bit busy today with the work for which I'm paid, so in lieu of original content, here's the recipes for the two cheese balls I make every holiday season for our annual Christmas Eve/New Year's Eve graze-fest. I like the first, the Smart Man enjoys the second. Both will lead to bypass surgery.

Simple Cheese Ball

2 blocks of cream cheese at room temperature
1 bundle chopped green onions
3 packages Buddig's dried beef, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons milk
Seasoned Salt to taste

Mix, form a ball and chill

Grandma Rita's Cheese Ball

11 oz cream cheese
1 jar Kraft Roka Blue Cheese spread
1 jar Kraft Pimento Cheese spread
1 jar Kraft Olive Pimento Cheese spread
1 jar Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese spread
1 onion, finely chopped
1 mango, finely chopped

Mix ingredients at room temperature, then roll in crushed walnuts and chill.

We serve both with a cracker variety and a gym membership.

Hmm, and Mmmm. See, but I mostly go for pork and sauerkraut for the New Year. Then sometime in the first week we have red beans and rice. Something about setting off right from the get go.

Happy New Year, Janiece (and all the UCFers). Here's to the new on being (much much) better than the last (eight).
