A Great Pumpkin Cheese Ball

  • 1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (10 oz.) container sharp cheddar cold-packed cheese spread
  • 1/4 c. crumbled blue cheese or other
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. celery salt
  • 1/4 tsp. onion salt
  • 1/2 c. walnuts, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 pretzel rod, broken in half
  • assorted crackers


Blend together cheese until smooth. Stir in Worcestershire sauce, celery salt and onion salt, adding more to taste if desired. Shape into a ball and set on serving plate; cover and chill for 2 to 3 hours until firm. If desired, score vertical lines with a knife to resemble a pumpkin. Toss walnuts with paprika; press into surface of cheese ball. Break pretzel rod in half and insert in top for stem. Arrange crackers around cheese ball. Serves 10-12 people. Use stem from a small pumpkin in place of pretzel rod for more of a fall effect.
