I'm very easy to please but I was disappointed in this recipe. I liked the idea of using pepperoni but the consistency didn't lend itself to making individual balls. That would have been a huge waste of time. It's possible to make it into one large ball or log but again it's lacking something in the consistency so this recipe as is would be best used as a bowl dip. I think I would eliminate most or all of the sour cream and butter and maybe try putting some dry Ranch mix or something similar in. EDIT: To be fair after this was left in the refrigerator overnight the consistency and taste were much much better. You could probably roll it into individual balls but spreading it on crackers is just fine.
for years i've been making a pepperoni cheese ball. Just Cream cheese softened add pepperoni that has been thru the food processor. mix together and chill. Take extra pepperoni that has been through the food processor sprinkle on was paper. Ball cheese mixture and roll through grated pepperoni. No extra ingredients!!!! Everyone loves this and they will ask for the recipe and i tell them it's really complicated and hard to make!!!
I changed it as well. I used a food processor and mixed the pepperoni cream cheese Worcestershire 2 Tbsp sour cream 1 tsp oregano and 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese. I thought it was good served it with chips. Next time I would add a little red pepper flakes for spice. Let sit for a few hours or overnight to blend flavors.
A great little appetizer that has very nice presentation. I used a small cookie scoop and made lots of little balls rather than just 12 as the recipe states. Each one was perfect to place on a Ritz cracker. I put a toothpick in each one to make picking up easier.
