Smoky Cheese Ball

 I love all kinds of savory appetizers during the holiday season and this smoky cheese ball is one of my favorites!

I really really like cheese balls and they can be such a nice change of pace from the usual dips.

Smoky Cheese Ball
1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese
1/2 pound grated cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp. liquid smoke flavoring
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. onion salt
1/8 tsp. garlic salt

Mix all ingredients and beat well. A hand mixer works well for this recipe as does a food processor. Shape in to ball and roll in chopped nuts. Cover and store in refrigerator. Allow to soften a bit at room temp before serving. Serve with your favorite cracker assortment.

Makes 1 1/2 to 2 cups and serves 6-8.

**Stay tuned... I have two more cheese ball recipes to share in the next week or so!
