Cheese Ball

Here is a simple and quick-to-make appetizer that I get rave reviews about.

1 8 oz package of cream cheese
2 c. shredded cheese (any kind - I usually use colby jack because that's what I keep on hand).
dash of ground mustard or cayenne pepper
sliced green onions
chopped walnuts

Mix the cheeses, spices and onions thoroughly and shape into a ball. Roll in walnuts.

I have also made this into cheese truffles. I made one inch balls and rolled some in nuts, green onion, sesame seeds etc. You could use pecans instead, add in pimento or diced green chilies etc. It's very easy to mix up and almost impossible to mess up.
