Grandma’s Holiday Cheese Ball

It's not the holidays without Grandma's Holiday Cheese Ball. This is the BEST holiday cheeseball I have ever tasted. It beats any store-bought or homemade cheeseball with flying colors.

It’s not the holidays without Grandma’s Cheese Ball. It brings back all the memories of growing up, eating grandma’s delicious home baked goods.

This Cheeseball may be her very best work. It is so thick and creamy and full of just the right flavor.

If you have big holiday events coming up, you’ll want to be sure this cheeseball is going to make an appearance.

It is quick to make, and everyone will rave about it. You will love it.

What could I use in place of walnuts?

If you are not much of a walnut fan, don’t worry. You could easily substitute the walnuts out for something else.

I personally prefer using almonds or pecans, when rolling my cheeseballs, but you could also roll it in shredded and shopped cheese, such as parmesan, mozzarella, or cheddar.

I also like rolling mine in just bacon, and nothing else.

They are also very delicious plain, without being rolled in anything extra.

what could I dip in the cheeseball?

The most critical part of this recipe, is deciding what types of food to dip in it. I personally wouldn’t mind going in with a spoon, but it may taste better with a little something crunchy.

For this picture, we used a small pretzel, but you could easily switch it up, and add your favorite dipping cracker, or bread to it.

I have a lot of recommendations, but here are a few of my favorite things to dip into this simple and delicious 4 Ingredient Cheeseball:

-Wheat Thins
-Pigs In a Blanket Crackers
-Pita Bread
-Ritz Crackers
-Fresh Baked Bread
-Club Crackers
-French Bread Slices
