Smoky Cheese Ball
In a medium mixing bowl let cream cheese, shredded cheese, and butter stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Add milk and steak sauce; beat until fluffy. Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours.Advertisement
Shape mixture into a ball; roll in nuts. Let stand for 15 minutes. Serve with crackers.
If desired, divide mixture into thirds for smaller balls. Roll each in nuts or a mixture of dried fruit, such as cherries, apricots and cranberries; a mixture of chopped cashews and toasted coconut; and/or a mixture of crisp-cooked bacon and finely chopped jalapeno peppers.
Prepare as above, except do not roll in nuts. Wrap cheese ball in moisture- and vapor-proof plastic wrap. Freeze for up to 1 month. To serve, thaw the cheese ball in refrigerator overnight. Roll in nuts. Let stand for 30 minutes at room temperature before serving.
