Carla's Famous Cheese Ball

My mom made this for Christmas Eve growing up and now my husband and his friends even request it.  It is soooooo simple.  Only a few ingredients and some messy hands will have you on your way to a delicious cheeseball.  The best part is I've even been known to eat this for lunch!

2 packages softened cream cheese
2 packages of beef deli meat (I use Carl Buddig Beef.  I'm also pretty sure that my mom only uses one package, but I like a cheese ball with more substance!...Love you mom!!)
1 bunch of green onions

Chop meat and green onions and add to cream cheese.  Mix with hands and form into a ball.  Wrap with plastic wrap and chill until ready to eat.  Serve wth Ritz Crackers.

If you have a very sharp knife it is easy to chop the meat and onions.  In a pinch I have been known to use kitchen shears, which makes things super easy.  I also spray my bowl and my hands with just a little bit of cooking spray so more of it ends up in the ball and not on your hands!

  1. This sounds very "yum in the tum." I love the tip about spraying your hands with cooking spray!
