Easy Cheese Ball
Enjoy an Easy Cheese Ball recipe whenever you want to serve some cheese and bread or crackers and make it look extra special and attractive. There are plenty of ways to prepare an easy cheese ball recipe. Some cheese ball recipes include more than one type of cheese and even a variety of different ingredients that you blend to create the cheese ball. This easy cheese ball recipe does just that, and it blends several different ingredients including two different types of cheese to create a very special cheese ball that you can share with friends and visitors.
A cheeseball is a fun and special way to serve up cheese and bread, crackers, pickles and other accompaniments. You can make the cheeseball recipe with a whole range of different cheeses, and you can even attempt to invent your own recipe. This particular recipe blends cream cheese as well as parmesan cheese in order to create this cheeseball. This cheeseball is also rolled in almonds at the end, and served with chopped nuts embedded on all the sides, top and bottom. Another nut that is delicious with any cheeseball is walnuts. Pecans are another great choice to roll the cheeseball in when you want that kind of finish on your cheeseball. Of course, it is almost (but not quite) as delicious served without the chopped nuts. But the nuts will also add great nutrition to this dish. Nuts are loaded with minerals, and important ones, such as calcium and magnesium. They also provide great fiber, protein and the good fats. So nuts are a good thing to add to this dish. The cheese of course also adds great nutrition, including minerals like calcium and magnesium as well as protein, but dairy is also loaded with bad fats. So perhaps between the nuts and the cheese you have a balance. Watch the calorie count for this dish since both dairy and nuts are high in calories and fats, even if some of them are good ones.
This dish is really quite simple to make, and so the up and coming cook could put this together if she or he is in the mood to make such a thing. It gets even easier because you can use the mixer to blend everything together and then this dish will take only a few minutes to make. And there are not so many ingredients that it will take long to bring them together, and it makes no difference how you add them in. Just toss everything in to the mixing bowl and blend away. In just a few minutes you will have a thick mixture you shape in a ball and then roll in nuts.
