Homemade company cheese balls are so easy to make. This retro recipe has one secret ingredient in it that you will never guess.
This company cheese ball recipe is from my Grandmother’s recipe. This recipe makes one very large cheese ball. It is very easy to make this one. It has a lot of different ingredients in it, but the result will be a flavorful appetizer that your family and friends will enjoy.
The one secret ingredient in here is steak sauce. You can use Heinz 57 or A1. The steak sauce adds a nice touch, and when you eat the cheese ball you really can’t distinguish what is giving it the flavor. I do make one change from my Grandmother’s recipe she used dried onions in her version, I like to use green onions. You can choose either one.
I love making a homemade cheese ball. They are easy to make, you can make them a day or two ahead of time. When you make from scratch you know exactly what’s in there. Sure, they sell these in the grocery store, but often there are lots of preservatives in there. You could also easily modify this recipe, you could swap out the cheese, for example, you could use a Monterey Jack cheese in here for some flair.
