Ronette's Fantastic Cheese Ball
This is a really good cheese ball. Simple and quick to put together, you can dress it up or down, depending upon your gathering. Just remember to make it ahead of time.
- Mix together the softened cheeses, add the grated onion, Worcestershire sauce and 1/2 cup of the parsley. Knead everything together until thoroughly combined. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
- Mix the remaining 1/4 cup of parsley with the chopped pecans and spread evenly on a flat surface. Mold the cheese into whatever shape you desire -- ball, loaf, log -- and press it into the chopped pecan mixture, coating evenly on all sides. Cover and refrigerate at least overnight.
Note: Garlic lovers might want to add 1/4 teaspoon or so of garlic powder to the mix.
