I love that cheese balls are considered a southern thing! It is the perfect thing to bring to any get-together, not too much that it will overshine anything the hostess has prepared and it is an all-around crowd pleaser. I mean who doesn’t love a good cheese ball served with yummy crackers? It is definitely a holiday staple for my family. Come to think of it.. this recipe I am sharing with you today is very similar to my Noni’s go to cheese ball. I will have to share it with you guys one day soon!
I had several people tag me in a pumpkin shaped cheese ball last Fall so this has been on my list for a while to try out, and my meeting yesterday evening was the perfect opportunity to give it a go.
Some of you may be familiar with the Trader Joes ‘Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seaning Blend’, which you can get on Amazon by the way, BUT for all of my small town friends, Walmart sells a blend that is almost exactly the same and half the price. Score! This seasoning blend is kind of addictive. The perfect additive to your avocado toast, eggs, and so much more.
I hope you give this fun pumpkin shaped cheese ball a try for your Thanksgiving!
