    Default Easy Cheese Balls

    For the cheese balls:

    1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
    4 cups shredded cheddar cheese, room temp.
    2 Tbs. milk
    2 Tbs. onion, finely chopped
    2 Tbs. worcestershire sauce

    For the outside coating use any of the following or add your own
    craced black pepper with crumbled cheese (blue is nice, about 1/2 c.)
    minced parsley and garlic powder (about 1/4 tsp)

    finely chopped pecans or walnuts

    In a bowl, beat cheeses, milk, onion and worcestershire sauce until fluffy. Divide into thirds (1 cup, each). Shape into ball and roll in outside coating of your choice. Cover and refrigerate till slightly firm. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Serve with crackers. Makes 3 cheese balls.

    Would cracker crumbs make a good coating? I know slivered almonds are used often but what else might I use?
