Instructions Checklist
  • Stir cream cheese, Cheddar and 2 tablespoons seasoning together in a medium bowl.

  • Just before serving, pour the remaining 2 tablespoons seasoning into a shallow dish. Roll the cheese ball in the seasoning, pressing to adhere.


To make ahead: Prepare through Step 2 and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
