Party Cheese Ball


  • 1 - 8 oz. Philly Cream Cheese
  • 3/4 - Tablespoon of dried onion flakes
  • 1 1/2 - Tablespoons of parsley flakes
  • 2 - teaspoons of Worcester Sauce
  • 1/2 - teaspoon of lemon juice optional
  • 1/4 - Chopped Nuts enough to cover
  • Crackers


  • Let cream cheese sit at room temperature for approx. 30 minutes
  • Place cream cheese into medium size bowl. Soften cream cheese with spoon.
  • Add onions, Worcester sauce, parsley flakes; mix well.
  • Lightly butter clean hands (this makes the ball shaping less sticky.)

  • Once chilled, chop dried beef into small pieces. Roll cheese ball in beef until coated.

    No playing, BonBon, I’ve never tried to make a cheese ball! I had no idea they were so easy to make, I am definitely going to try this because we have a few other parties to attend this season and I could make this for our family game night at the cabin too. Can’t wait to try it! Hugs, CoCo
