Tuna and Cream Cheese Ball

Comment on this recipe

This is a recipe that my friend makes and it is absolutely delicious. A little different version of a cheese ball but one that will please everyone.

Ingredients

1 large package (8 ounces) and 1 small package (3 ounces) of cream cheese
3 tablespoons butter or margarine (preferably butter)
1/4 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons chopped parsley
2 teaspoons steak sauce
1 can (5 ounces) finely chopped tuna (in oil) drained
1/2 cup crushed pecans or walnuts

Instructions

Let cream cheese and butter soften completely to room temperature. Mix together cream cheese, butter, sour cream, parsley, steak sauce and tune using an electric mixer. Refrigerate until mixture is completely chilled. Shape into a ball and roll in crushed pecans or walnuts. Serve with crackers.
