Thanksgiving Dinner~Mom’s famous cheeseball


My mom has to make 2-4 of these cheese balls (and they aren’t small!) for Thanksgiving appetizers because they are gobbled up just as soon as she can put them out. We love them with a great gluten-free cracker or with veggies. You have the option of making a shrimp or bacon cheeseball. Even if your not a big seafood fan the shrimp cheese ball is great!

2 pkgs. organic cream cheese
1 c. raw or organic cheddar, shredded
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. onion, chopped finely
1 tsp. Real garlic salt
1 tsp. chives
1 Tbls. parsley
1 Tbls. organic mayonnaise or vegennaise
1 can baby shrimp, drained OR 1 pkg. nitrate-free bacon, cooked and chopped + 1 Tbls. bacon fat
Nuts of your choice (I like pecans.)

*Mix everything together. Crush nuts on wax paper and roll cheese ball into nuts until completely covered. Refrigerate overnight and serve cold. So good!!!
