It just isn't Christmas unless everyone is snacking on a ball of seasoned cheese at Grandma's house! This appetizer has been a staple in my family's holiday celebration as long as I can remember, and honestly I could make a meal out of it! Here is my grandma's secret Christmas cheese ball recipe!



  • 2 blocks of cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup of cooked chopped ham
  • 3/4 - 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp of Worcestershire suace
  • Garlic and onion powder to taste
  • Top with sliced green olives

The directions for this couldn't be simpler. Mix all the contents together, form it into a ball, and then stick it in the refrigerator until it is ready to serve.

Pro Tip: The best way to eat it is with Keebler Townhouse Crackers. They are the perfect shape to hold the most cheese ball possible at one time!
