Pimento Cheese Ball

Love this quick and easy recipe that makes
one of the best appetizers ever!

Convenient to make for parties since it
can be made three days in advance.

  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • (4-ounce) jar processed pimiento cheese spread
  • garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  1. In a large bowl, with an electric beater on medium speed, beat Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, pimiento cheese, and garlic for 2 minutes, or until smooth.
  2. Place mixture on waxed paper and form into a ball. Wrap in waxed paper and chill for about 2 hours, or until firm.
  3. Place pecans in a shallow dish. Remove waxed paper from cheese ball and roll it in pecans, completely coating it.
  4. Serve, or wrap well and chill until ready to serve.

Yields: 2 cups
