Mrs. Chan's Cheese Ball
For those of you who are new to the Charlie Chan Annex, the Mrs. Chan above is also known as my mother, Becky Truesdale. This is her recipe which I took over making for the family every Thanksgiving and Christmas several years ago.
I hope you enjoy it!
MRS. CHAN'S CHEESE BALL
Let come to room temperature:
Cream Cheese with Chives
(or twice the cream cheese and add chives)
Kraft Smokelle Cheese
(or use Kraft Cheddar Cheese and add Liquid Smoke)
Kraft Garlic Cheese
(or increase the cheddar and add garlic powder)
Port Wine Cheese, 1/4 cup
(or use Paul Masson Ruby Port, etc.)
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon onion salt
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 tablespoon mustard
Mash all together with a potato masher.
Roll into a log or a ball. (You can make several smaller ones and put some in the freezer where they'll keep well--at least from Thanksgiving to Christmas!)
You can roll them in parsley, nuts or sprinkle with paprika.
Leave out to come to room temperature before serving.
Happy Holidays from our kitchen to yours!
