      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?

      I think cracker crumbs would work fine…pretzel crumbs too 🙂
