This Classic Cheeseball Recipe is a family favorite. My Grandmom used to make these during the holidays when I was younger and were always a favorite of mine. I mean, does it really get better than a ball of cheesy goodness?

I remember the first time she taught me how to make this classic cheeseball recipe. She pulled out the handwritten recipe from her Rolodex and spent a few hours that night in the kitchen with me laughing and showing me the secret ingredients that made the flavors pop in this classic cheeseball recipe.

The important thing to remember about any cheeseball recipe, is that you NEED a sturdy cracker to eat them with. My favorite cracker to eat my classic cheeseball recipe with is Triscuit Crackers. Last week, I was doing some holiday shopping at Walmart and when I came across Triscuit Crackers I knew I had to make this classic cheeseball recipe. Triscuit offers so many flavors. My favorites are still the Original and Garden Vegetable flavors. It’s hard to beat a good thing and they just go with everything! Triscuit is baked with 100% whole wheat and are now even NON-GMO.

Making this classic cheeseball recipe is extremely easy. Allowing your cream cheese to soften for an hour or two will make the process of making this classic cheeseball recipe SO much easier. Once it’s softened, add diced peppers, pimentos, Worcester sauce, spices and shredded cheese to a bowl. Mix until well combined.

Once the ingredients are well combined, let the ingredients marinate together in the refrigerator for about an hour. This allows the flavors to really come together. The taste is well worth the wait, trust me!

While your ingredients are chilling, add sliced walnuts and almonds (or either or – I like a mixture of both) to food processor. I like to chop these but not blend completely. I think they’re so much better and easier to roll when the nuts are chopped small instead of blended completely.

After your ingredients in your bowl have chilled, form a ball with the mixture. Place your chopped nuts on parchment paper and roll your cheeseball on nuts to cover the ball. Chill for another 30 minutes to harden the cheeseball.
