Favorite Cheese Ball..Quick & Easy!

Dish: Appetizers
Dish Type: Cheese
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: chill

  • 1/2 envelope - ranch dressing mix
  • 1 Tbsp - finely chopped onion
  • 1/2-1 cup - slivered almonds (enough to coat cheese ball)
  • 3-4 slices - finely chopped thin sliced ham (add to taste)
  • 1 package - cream cheese (8 oz)

Put cream cheese in a larger bowl and soften for a few seconds in the microwave and this will make it easier to mix everything. Add all ingredients to the cream cheese, except almonds, and mix together. Pour the almonds in a plate and scrape the cheeseball mixture on top of the almonds. Coat entire ball with almonds, cover, and put in the fridge to chill...enjoy!

Sorry about that, use an 8 oz package. These are the first recipes I've posted and for some reason, once i saved them, an ingredient was removed. So I've had to edit them and add it back in.
