Perfect Cheeseballs for the Holidays


  • 8 oz. grated cheddar cheese or your choice of cheese
  • 8 oz. softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 medium onion, minced
  • 2 Tbls. dried chives
  • 2 Tbls. mayonnaise
  • 1 cup nuts well chopped.
  • (any seasoning you prefer can be used.)


Mix all ingredients, except the nuts and form a ball. Roll in the chopped nuts until evenly coated. Chill until serving time.

I prepare several at a time as the recipe can be doubled, wrap in air tight plastic wrap. Store in refrigerator and have them to use through the holidays. Also makes nice gifts for family and friends.

P.S. Serving with crackers or garlic toast, this recipe is perfect for any party. It is pretty when rolled in parsley mixed with the nuts.
