My family loves this recipe. I have been making it for 10 years and my mother before me since before I was born. You have to love blue cheese and it definitly needs a night in the fridge to let the flavors mingle. I roll mine as soon as I mix the cheese up. Then I wrap it in plastic wrap add a red bow to tie it up put it in the fridge overnight and its ready for transport to anyones house. Thanks for posting this. Read More

I make this same recipe but instead of shredded cheddar I use 7 oz of aged "Kaukauna" cheddar cheese spread or "Old English" cheese. It makes it fantastic! My entire family looks for it at every holiday. The aged cheddar spread makes it a 5 star recipe! Read More

This was a great base from which to start! I had feta cheese instead of blue cheese so substituted that. I also added a dollop of sour cream and a few dashes of cayenne pepper to "hop" it up a bit. Turned out delicious! I'm impatient when making a cheese ball so I don't wait overnight to finish it. You'll get a bit messy but it's OK to form your cheese ball when it's soft and sticky and roll it in the walnuts. Then you can start eating it earlier! Read More

This is delicious. Second time I am making it. I did notice the one I froze crumbled when I went to roll it in the nuts so I think it is not a good one to make ahead and freeze. It is very easy to whip up. Its what others call "a keeper". Read More

This was a hit at my Christmas Party. I added some blue cheese that was pre-mixed with pear. Instead of raw onion I used red onion and sauteed it till soft set it aside to cool and added it to the cheese mixture. The sweet caramelized red onion went fabulous with the blue cheese. Read More

This cheeseball is delicious! I do omit the onions and use pecans in place of walnuts. With these minor modifications it tastes EXACTLY like the one my late father used to make for Christmas Eve every year. I've been looking for this recipe for awhile. Thank you for posting it! By the way it is a MUST that this chill overnight! Read More

Very good. I find that adding a pressed clove of garlic pushes the taste up to 5 stars. Read More

Made this over the holidays. My family thought it was excellent! I used pecans instead of walnuts and also mixed them in with the cheese ball instead of rolling them on the outside. Definately a keeper. Read More

A true 5 stars! Made exactly as stated and it's fabulous. No one in my family likes blue cheese except for me and my elderly father. I made this for us to enjoy Christmas day and we couldn't keep everyone else out of it! It makes a huge cheese ball so I divided it and made two cheese logs...saving one for New Year's! Read More
