I don't know what it is, but every year from about Thanksgiving to early March I CRAVE this stuff!! This was a cheese ball that my mom always made growing up. It must hold some kind of nostalgic powers or something!:)
Deviled Ham Cheese Ball (or blob!)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. sharp or medium cheddar cheese, shredded
1 can deviled ham (found by the canned tuna and chicken...usually on the top row)
Cream the cheeses together and then add in the ham and mix to combine. Now you can form a ball and roll it in parsley (as my Mom did growing up) or in chopped nuts of your liking, but I just like it plain and so I just throw it in a bowl and use it as a dip. It is so good with Wheat Thins, but we also like it with Ritz crackers.
Served with chips and salsa, Jalapeno Popper Dip (recipe to come) and french onion dip. This was our New Year's Eve snacks while we played games! Such fun...and deliciousness!:)
