Sherry's Cheese Ball

Comment on this recipe

"This is a favorite of my husband, Mike Latham, made for years by his mother, Sherry Bishop of Bettendorf. I make it every year for our family as comfort food for him and a reminder of the special holidays he spent with his family.

"I usually make this a week or so before the holidays and it will last for the New Year celebration."

Ingredients

2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter, softened
2 jars Hickory Smoked Cheddar Cheese Spread (or Bacon), softened
1 tablespoon milk
2 teaspoons Steak Sauce

Instructions

Combine cream cheese, butter, cheese spread, milk and Steak Sauce in a large mixing bowl. Using a fork mash all ingredients until thoroughly combined. Divide into 2 large balls and wrap each in clear plastic wrap. Refrigerate several hours to firm. Serve with crackers.
