Once grown and out on my own I discovered that not all cheese balls are created equal. I still shy away from them because of the dubious character of the cheese ball itself. One never knows what is used in the preparation of one of these. It is kind of like a fruit cake. Just where did that fruit (cheese) come from.
But, in defense of cheesy spreads everywhere, I came up with this dry mix that can be added to cottage cheese or cream cheese. It has a wonderful flavor when mixed into ordinary cottage cheese, makes a wonderful spread with cream cheese, and can even be formed into a ball if you wish to frighten small children.
Give it a try!
