My darling sister (PT Screen Name: TigerBlossom) made a second Cheese Ball that was as fabulous as the first. I'm posting it here, because I've been misplacing recipes lately, and want to keep this one for reference later.
Onion-Garlic Cheese Ball
1/2 small white onion, minced
1 clove garlic (I think I'd bake the garlic clove to 'gentle' the flavor)
Dash of Worchestershire Sauce
1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
Brick of Cream Cheese (softened)
Mix the first 5 ingredients with 1/4 to 1/2 cup of pecans. Shape into a ball (or log), roll in remaining pecans. Sprinkle with paprika and chill before serving.
Serve with chips or crackers, as prefered.
