I made this cheese ball awhile ago to try out these mini toasts I got at Whole Foods.
The toasts were gross. (I was expecting melbatoast and I got yukatoast)
You know where you're not supposed to put you're hand? Yeah.
But I'd rather not talk about it.
It's something else to add about what these cheese balls are to me.
I remember a 2nd grade Thanksgiving party when I brought it and ate none of it.
Yes, me. Olive lover extraordinaire.
Of course when I was probably 10, I realized they were olives and fell in love.
Classic love story. Girl meets dip. Girl hate dip. Girl makes dip. Girl loves dip.
So here it is: the family cheese ball
(from my mom's side)
I heard "Akinla" by Flea Sowade while driving home from cross country practice.
This orchestra totally doesn't do it justice, but I couldn't find another version.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 8 oz. cream cheese
- 4 oz. bleu cheese
- 1/4 t. grated onion
- 1 can pitted ripe black olives (drained and chopped)
- 1 package sliced almonds
Blend softened butter, cheeses, onion and olives. Shape in a ball and roll in almonds. Refrigerate. (This also freezes well) Serve with crackers (definitely not these toasts though!)
