April 17th is National Cheese Ball Day.

The holiday was entered into the record as cheeseball, even though cheese ball is the preferred spelling.
 
TWO FUN IDEAS

Cheese balls are typically served as party food, on a tray with crackers.

How about trying something different:

  • Serve the cheese ball as a first course or with the salad course after dinner, instead of salad with a piece of cheese. Mini cheese balls (photos #2 and #3) work best for this: Just put one or two on each salad plate.
  • Or, you can bring the cheese ball to the table, cut a wedge, and pass it around so people can slice their own.
  • Have a wine and cheese ball potluck party. Have each person make his/her favorite cheese ball recipe. Check to be sure that they’re all different recipes.
     
    Here’s a recipe to start you off, from Kathryn’s Cottage Kitchen, maker of the best blue cheese dressing ever.
