Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest cheese ball I've ever made! Easiest cheese ball I've ever made! I cut back on the feta to one container. Added some pepper, oregano and garlic to kick it up a notch. Didn't have walnuts, so I toasted some almonds, chopped them up and rolled the 2 balls in those instead of parsley. People keep asking me of the recipe. A definite hit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I served this on New Year's Day. I served this on New Year's Day. Excellent texture and flavor. Serve with gourmet crackers and/or baguette. You can also add in some extras such as pimento, minced ham, other herbs, etc. Watch out to not add any more salty items since feta is salty.

My family couldn't get enough at Thanksgiving. Many thanks to Kraft for a fantastic recipe. (I used crushed pecans on the outside instead of parsley.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used a bit of Cayenne pepper for a bit more kick and just used it as a dip, not the cheese ball. I used a bit of Cayenne pepper for a bit more kick and just used it as a dip, not the cheese ball. Everyone asked for the recipe and I made it several times last year for several parties. One of my favorites!
