"I grew up eating this on special occasions. We ate it with either buttery, round crackers or stuffed in celery sticks. It is very rich tasting. Try different types of nuts for the coating."

I have never rated a recipe until now. This is absolutely terrible. I guess I will keep searching for a 5 star cheeseball.

Made this for an appetizer/snack on Christmas day. Really great flavor. I made it into two smaller cheese balls, and it was a big hit. YUM!

We made this for our work Christmas party but we used chopped green olives stuffed with jalapenos, it was a little salty, but the added spice from the peppers was great.
