Super Bowl Recipe Exchange: Cheese Ball

I'd always wanted a cheese ball recipe, but the ones I found always had ingredients that my husband and I don't really care for (we're incredibly picky), then I came across this one.  It's easy and it's fabulous!


2 pkg cream cheese, softened
1 jar dried beef, finely chopped
1 bunch green onions, finely chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
dash of garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce

  1. Cream mayonnaise and cream cheese together.  Add onions and 1 tablespoon of dried beef and remaining ingredients and mix well.
  2. Refrigerate at least one hour.
  3. Form into a ball.  Coat ball in remaining dried beef.
*Serve with crackers

I actually made two smaller balls out of this recipe when I made it, or you could make one larger recipe.  You can also put nuts on the outside, but I don't care for nuts so I chose not to do that.
