Horseradish Cheddar Cheese Ball

Horseradish Cheddar Cheese Ball

Along with serving your traditional cheese platter think about adding a Horseradish Cheddar Cheese Ball.  It is unique, but not overpowering.  It’s easy to make, but will look like you spent all day crafting it.  This cheese ball is great for holiday parties as well as a pre-dinner appetizer.  Serve with any type of crusty bread, vegetables or crackers that you prefer. If you are vegetarian then leave out the bacon crumbles.



8 Ounces Softened Cream Cheese

3/4 Cup Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

3 Tablespoons Finely Chopped Onion

1 Tablespoon Prepared Horseradish

2 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Parsley

1 1/2 Teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce

1/4 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/4 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

3 Cooked Bacon Slices – Crumbled

1/3 Cup Chopped Toasted Walnuts


In a large size bowl mix together the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, onion, horseradish, crumbled bacon, parsley, Worcestershire, kosher salt and pepper.  Form the cheese mixture into a ball and cover with plastic wrap.  Chill in the fridge overnight.  Place the chopped walnuts into a medium size bowl.  Remove the cheese ball from the fridge, remove the plastic wrap and roll the cheese ball in the walnuts so that it is coated evenly.  Serves 10
