Doris' Cheese Ball makes a fantastic appetizer before dinner and is the perfect party food. Make more than one if you are feeding more than 8 people. 

My cousin, Doris, shared her recipe for her delicious cheese ball years ago. We have made it many times since then, and each time I am struck anew with how really good this easy, simple to make cheese ball is.  It is always a popular addition to a table full of party food. In fact, I normally make two or more because they are eaten up quickly.

Make sure you chop the onions pretty finely so the cheese ball doesn’t have large chunks in it. The rest is easy…just mix everything together well before rolling the resulting ball into the nuts. Wrap the cheese ball and chill well before you need it. Your cheese ball will be a hit!
