Neighborhood Favorite

1 8 oz. block of cream cheese, slightly softened
1 5 oz. jar Kraft Old English cheese (Bacon Cheddar may also be used.)
3 Tbsps. finely chopped onion (About 1/2 a small onion.)
Chopped pecans

With a fork, combine the cream cheese, Old English and onion until it is blended together.
(note: A food processor will make this too soft to form into a ball. I recommend the fork method.)
Dampen hands and form mixture into a ball, roll in chopped pecans.
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate in a cup or bowl to keep it round until firm.

Serve with assorted crackers or veggies.

I will be making one of these today for our annual block party tonight.

Yummy... we used to have these at Christmas. I think my family got lazy and just goes with Hillshire Farms cheese logs now. :-) Have fun at the block party!

I know a little dog named Dash who thinks these little cheese balls when set on a low coffee table, are simply delish.

I couldn't agree with her more.

Dash especially enjoys the before dinner goodies at our house... But, best of all is after dinner on Bobby's lap having a few leftovers!
