Cheddar Cheese Ball

Another cheese ball recipe. This is the very first one I ever made. Given that it was from America's Test Kitchen, it is no wonder it was so good. Once again oh so easy and delicious. You could make any additions such as bacon, fresh herbs etc to change this recipe up. I think the next time I make one of these I'll add some bacon to it. Yummmm!

Cheddar Cheese Ball
America's Test Kitchen

1 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon worchestire sauce
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 cups of grated cheddar cheese

1.In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, mayonnaise, worchestire sauce, and garlic until smooth. Once smooth, add cheddar cheese and continue to blend until all ingredients are well incorporated. Wrap the mixture in some clear plastic wrap and mold into a rough ball shape. Refrigerate 6 to 8 hours, or overnight. Once refrigerated, unwrap the ball and re-shape to make a neat ball. Roll the ball in sliced almonds.

Let the ball sit out for 15 minutes before serving so that it has enough time to soften a little.
