Are you going to include cheese balls among your Super Bowl recipes again this year? Ever noticed how some picky guest carefully scrapes off whatever nuts the cheese ball is coated in? Then make a cheese ball with finely crushed potato chips! Forget the expensive sliced almonds or diced pecans!
Try this delicious, super easy, extra delicious cheese ball recipe below…and let the kids help!
You will need :
1# grated cheddar cheese ( I use medium sharp )
4 oz. crumbled blue cheese
8 oz. pkg.cream cheese, softened
1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup finely grated onion
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. red pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped, drained green olives ( optional )
1-1/2 cups flavored potato chips ( crushed well )
All cheese should be at room temp. Place in bowl and mix on low with electric mixer. Add all seasonings, mix again for a few seconds, then blend in half cup of crushed chips.
Remove from bowl and place on wax paper. Use your hands to shape into a ball, then roll in remaining potato chips. Place covered ball in refrigerator. Allow to sit overnight if possible..if not, chill for at least 4 hours.
