Ham It Up Cheese Ball
This week for Mitten Movie Night I’m shaking things up a bit! No beer pairing. Instead I am sharing a quick appetizer that can be made for all the fun parties and tailgates that are going on for Fall. Just a few ingredients and you’ve got a creamy, cheesy, hammy Cheese Ball that you can serve with chips or crackers. Party perfection!
Usually Friday night is the night hubby and I relax. Watch a movie, grab a good beer after eating a great dinner. But tonight is different because I have another date…with my 10 year old! We are heading to see author Johnathan Rand at the local Middle School. On a trip 3 years ago to Mackinac Island we found his Michigan Chillers books so we purchased a few. Since then Big A’s collection has grown quite extensively to include most of the American Chillers as well. Here he is a few years ago for ‘Dress Like A Book Character Day’ in honor of Kentucky Komodo Dragons.
It was exciting when I was reading our local newspaper and found out he was coming right here to our little town! We may be small but we have a great Chamber of Commerce, the Dogwood Fine Arts which is putting this together as well as Southwestern Michigan College who put on plays that just make my jaw drop. It’s a great place to live in the Bottom Left of the Mitten. So he and I are going to head there while Dad & Little A stay home.
Ok, on to the cheese ball! I am making this for a party that we are going to tomorrow. Hay ride, good friends, good food. I’m excited. The nice thing about this is it takes just a few ingredients and quick even though it does require some serious stirring. Check out the video below for directions….
From our home in the Bottom Left of the Mitten to yours ~ Enjoy!
