I have been dreaming about this Salami Cream Cheese Ball for quite some time now. Several years ago my sister-in-law came to my house for a visit and she whipped up the most amazing cream cheese ball that was stuffed full of chopped salami and green onions. It seemed almost too simple, but when smeared on a buttery cracker??
Ohmygoshpeople… it’s heavenly!
With football season and holiday season upon us, I knew it was the perfect time to unleash this bad boy on you.
You could roll the cheese ball in chopped walnuts like I did for this Smoked Salmon Cream Cheese Ball or if you’re really adventurous, try rolling it in some chopped bacon! Yum!
I kept the nuts off because I wanted to be able to send some to school with my kids in their lunch boxes. (they go to a nut-free school) although I’ve seen some of those kids and… well… let’s just say, they can be a little nutty…
Anyways, I lurve this cream cheese ball.
I actually used this new cream cheese made with greek yogurt that I found next to the regular cream cheeses, and it’s amazing! Have you seen this? So thick and creamy! Plus the added protein is a super plus! Don’t worry though, it will work with regular cream cheese as well. 🙂
So if you’re planning on hosting a football party, a holiday party, a baby shower, a girl’s night or anything in between there, you’ll definitely want to bring along this cream cheese ball and loads of crackers (carrot sticks and sliced cucumbers work well too).
