Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been making this Cheese Ball for over 29 years and it is Always a hit ! I have been making this Cheese Ball for over 29 years and it is Always a hit !!! Everytime we are going somewhere that we need to take something I get a request for this cheese ball. At Christmas I roll it in parsley and call it a Moss Ball. I put it on a red paper doily and it is very festive looking, of course I top it with a stemmed marchino cherry for effect, lol. Deb

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I enjoy this. I enjoy this. I made it soon as I saw it. I had the items and also some horseradish cheese. It made it taste so good. My husband loves it. We left the nuts off and just did a little saffron instead. I had 1/2 tsp left. We buy it a health food store where it is cheaper so we can do this. I has just a few of them all over it. The flavor and color kick---. IT is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this simple cheese ball. I love this simple cheese ball. I've also rolled it in parsley or red pepper flakes to serve to a crowd in case of nut allergies. I always get lots of compliments and requests for the recipe. One note: although leftovers (if you have any) are still good the second or third day, after that it really starts to give off an aroma of blue cheese!

I also gave the spread in a crock with a spreader for a little thank you gift to a friend, and her family loved it. I had to give her the recipe. Even those who did not care for blue cheese ate it and liked it.

I have always added a few sprinkles of worcestershire sauce in with it. I decrease the amount of blue cheese in half and it's still great.
