Made ahead and tucked in the freezer, cheeseballs become almost instant nibbles!
Updated December 4, 2019

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup shredded Havarti cheese (2 ounces)
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese (1 1/2 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon dry white wine or milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon chopped fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 2 medium green onions, finely chopped (2 tablespoons)
  • 1/3 cup chopped slivered almonds, toasted
  • Melba toast rounds or other crackers, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, beat all ingredients except almonds and toast rounds with electric mixer on low speed until blended. Beat on medium speed, scraping bowl frequently, until fluffy.
  • 2
    Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm enough to shape. Shape cheese mixture into a ball; roll in almonds. Serve with toast rounds.

  • This is a great recipe to double. Serve one cheese ball right away, and keep the other on hand for impromptu entertaining. Cover and refrigerate up to 1 week. Cheese ball can be tightly wrapped and frozen up to 2 months. About 1 hour before serving, unwrap cheese ball and let stand at room temperature to thaw. Or thaw loosely wrapped cheese ball in refrigerator at least 8 hours.
  • To toast nuts, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350ºF oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
