Earlier this week, my mom was asked for the innards of this Blue Cheese Ball recipe she made last year for a holiday party. She recovered a recipe that includes simply five palate-pleasing ingredients.
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
3/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup sliced almonds
- In a medium bowl, stir together the cream cheese, blue cheese, Cheddar cheese and Worcestershire sauce. Transfer to a separate bowl that has been lined with plastic wrap. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- The next day, gather the cream cheese mixture into a ball. Shape the ball into a pinecone and place sliced almonds accordingly. Refrigerate or serve immediately with crackers, particularly a kind with little seasoning.
Editor's Note: Listening to the Elvis original, "Blue Christmas," while in the kitchen, is encouraged.
