Ham & Cheese Ball

This ham & cheese ball was one of the finger foods I made for our Christmas Eve meal.  It’s delicious!  Great with crackers or whatever you want to serve it with.  I wanted to share the recipe straightaway because it would great to serve for New Year’s Eve parties as well.  It’s easy to make, and even better, needs to be made ahead of time, so all you have to do is bring it out of the fridge when you’re ready to eat.


Ham & Cheese Ball


  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped ham
  • 2 Tb minced green onion
  • 2 tsp horseradish
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley


Beat together cream cheese and yogurt until smooth.  Stir in all remaining ingredients except parsley.  Chill at least 1 hour, or until mixture is firm enough to handle.  Shape into a ball and roll in parsley.  Cover with plastic wrap and chill.
