Well, what do you know...another appetizer recipe ;) My Mom has been making this for as long as I can remember and it's one of those recipes that people tend to request. It's really pretty easy to make and since it has to sit overnight in the fridge, it's completely ready to go the next day! I would suggest serving it either on a buttery cracker (like TownHouse or Ritz) or Triscuits.
Just so everyone knows...I'm gearing up for my 100th post giveaway! Things have been SO hectic around here, but I'm trying to figure out exactly what I want to do. I'm hoping to have it posted no later than Monday!!!
Beef Cheese Ball
12 oz cream cheese, softened 1 package Buddig Beef 3-4 green onions 1 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice garlic powder to taste
Cut beef and onions into very small pieces. Add beef, onions, mayonnaise, lemon juice and garlic powder to softened cream cheese and mix thoroughly. Shape into ball and chill for several hours or overnight. (Serve with an assortment of crackers).
If you were to look up the word "picky" in the dictionary, you would see a picture of my husband off to the left. Growing up, I was exposed to all sorts of different foods and encouraged to experiment with different flavors, but after meeting my husband, I somewhat locked myself into an eight to ten meal rotation and was reluctant to deviate. I have since given birth to two of the least picky eaters on the face of the Earth, thus inspiring me to transform my cooking style. I know many people, like myself, lead such hectic lives, so I strive to find recipes that are quick and easy--especially those that you can whip up with ingredients that you ordinarily have on hand!
A bit about me...I married my husband, Marcus, on June 1, 2003 and we welcomed our son Jacob on March 22, 2005. Our daughter, Madeline, was born on March 1, 2008. I stay home with the kids for the most part, but also work occasional shifts as a registered nurse at a local hospital. I truly hope you enjoy my blog. A special "thank you" to my sister, Sarah, for giving me the idea! Her creativity is hard to live up to, but I'm a very determined person and hope to make her proud :)
