Cheryl’s Stinky Cheese Ball

Yep, you read that right – Cheryl’s Stinky Cheese Ball. I got the recipe from Cheryl and she calls this her Stinky Cheese Ball. I work with Cheryl. She is a hoot! She is dry and sarcastic and the right amount of crude. I just love her. Twice a year she brings this to work and I can’t get enough of it. So about 6 years ago I told her I had to have the recipe. So now I make it every Christmas/New Years and gobble the whole batch up. (Well, I wrestle my son for it but I mostly win.) =o)

It’s simple and tastes so delicious!!! Plus the name is great, don’t you think???
* 2 packs of cream cheese (sure, you can use light cream cheese if you want to, but why? Seriously. Cream cheese rocks.)
* 1 can of tuna or salmon (thus the Stinky part of the name)
* 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
* 2 stalks of chopped celery (I didn’t put any in because all the celery at the grocery store was wiggly and it grossed me out.)
* 1/4 cup finely chopped onion (I used a Walla Walla sweet onion. YUM.)
* 1 carrot, grated
* 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
* 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
* 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
* 1/4 tsp. seasoning salt
* Mix all the ingredients together and shape into a ball.
* Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
* Roll in grated nuts if desired. (I didn’t desire, because I’m not a huge nut person.)

* Serve with crackers. Ritz are my favorite with this. Man oh man. I’m telling you that you will love this cheese ball.
Looks pretty tasty doesn’t it? I ate it until my stomach hurt. Yep, I have that much self control =o)
