This is the easiest and best cheese ball. Don't be scared by the horseradish! I don't like it, but it tastes great in this recipe.

This is a recipe my mother made back in the 70's. A true classic. You can either make it into one large ball and serve with crackers or you can make them into smaller individual bite-size appetizers. No crackers needed with the smaller ones! I always use more horseradish than the recipe calls for but that is just what my family prefers! Read More

So easy and so good! We love the horseradish so I add a little more. Best to make a few hours early or let sit overnight. Read More

This was good but it needed more horseradish. I added parsley but green onions would have been a nice addition. Read More
