Deviled Ham Cheese Ball

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!:)

This is the same thing my Mom used to make when I was little too. I could eat the entire thing by myself with Triscuits. It brings back a lot of memories.

I was just looking for this recipe.. I bought these ingredients, always thought there was more to it.. My mom made it every Christmas my whole childhood. This is my first Christmas without her. I remember her telling me how easy it was and rattled off the contents last year.. like a moron. I didn't write it down.. I'm making my first one soon
