An old school ingredient makes for a festive comeback
There’s just something deliciously decadent about a ball of cheese surrounded by buttery crackers. It can make anytime look and feel like a fun celebration! With so much to handle in our day to day lives, it’s the little moments when we make time to enjoy each other that turn yummy food into an opportunity for gratitude and good times. We want to bring that kind of party to you and your loved ones with the cheesy, meaty flavors of this Creamed Chipped Beef Cheese Ball. We know firsthand that this is a crowd pleaser – it was gobbled up the second we put it out on the table!
