In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make a Spicy Ham and Cheese Ball. It is very easy to make, and it is great as an appetizer or for taking to a party.
(2) 8-oz. packages cream cheese, softened (I used the fat free variety.)
about 3 oz. thinly sliced cooked ham, chopped in small squares
¼ cup Italian salad dressing
¾ cup chopped pecans, spread in a single layer in a plate
Crackers of various types, for serving
In a large bowl, combine (2) 8-oz. packages softened cream cheese, 3 ounces sliced ham (chopped), and ¼ cup Italian salad dressing. Stir until all ingredients are well-mixed. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 30 minutes—longer is better. Shape mixture into ball, using a large spoon and plastic wrap to cover your hands. Roll ball in ¾ cup chopped pecans. Serve with a variety of crackers. Enjoy! –Betty
