Mom’s Cheddar Cheese Ball

Courtesy of my momma.  I remember this always being a crowd pleaser at parties and family get-togethers.  My brother especially made sure he was always in arm’s reach of it.


  • 1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese
  • 8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup onion, minced
  • 1/2 small can chopped olives
  • 1/2 small jar diced pimiento
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 bag chopped pecans


Place cheeses in small mixer bowl; let stand at room temperature until softened.  Add onions, olives, pimiento, and Worcestershire sauce; blend on low speed.  Beat on medium speed until fluffy, scraping sides and bottom of bowl.  Cover.  Chill at least 8 hours.

Shape into large ball.  Roll the ball in pecans.  Place on serving plate.  Cover; chill for 2 more hours, or until firm.

Arrange crackers around ball and serve as a spread.
