I don’t know about you guys, but we have so many holiday parties to go to this year! We have one tonight, one on Saturday, one on Monday, one on Tuesday… And we have to bring something delicious to each one. I have a huge sweet tooth, but I feel like everyone brings sweet treats to holiday parties, so I like to bring something savory. My go-to holiday appetizer is homemade cheese ball with lots of tasty crackers on the side. Cheese balls are so easy to make, and they always taste amazing. I have a few cheese ball recipes that I love. One of my favorites has pineapple, pecans, and green bell peppers. I used to hate it as a kid, but now I can’t get enough of it. I think about it all year! You can find the recipe on an old blog post HERE. Another favorite cheese ball recipes comes from my grandma, and my family practically inhales it every time I make it. It has minced salami and green onions, and is so easy to make—it only has four ingredients! You can find the recipe for the Salami Cheese Ball on my latest post for Minted’s blog, Julep.
