Cheeseball

Comment on this recipe

This makes a huge cheeseball and can be halved. It can also be changed to suit your own personal taste. I like more cheddar cheese, so I use an extra package. I have made this recipe for years. ... I have made this so many times that I don't even measure it out anymore.

Ingredients

4 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese
1 package (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup green pepper, chopped
1/3 cup onion, diced
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon cayanne pepper
4 packages (2.5 ounces each) Carl Buddig beef, finely chopped

Instructions

Mix together all ingredients except beef. Shape into a ball and roll until covered in the chopped beef.
