    Post your holiday-recipes that you *must* have - either once or again and again over the season. (Post the name of the dish or the whole recipe if you'll be so kind).

    My Mom's Cheeseball Recipe

    Ours is my Mom's cheeseball recipe - it's the only *unique* thing we do other than keylime pie. My Mom made it once when I was 4 - and we've made it every year after, it's stellar - but *very* bad for you ... but oh so good!

    I spread it on club crackers. . .One ball lasts for a few weeks - if you eat just a *little* bit at a time it doesn't seem that bad.

    Mom's Cheeseball recipe:

    2 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
    2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
    1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
    2 Tbs milk
    2 tsp steak sauce (or worchestershire sauce)
    1 cup finely chopped nuts

    In a mixer, combine cream cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, softened butter, milk & steak sauce. Beat with electric mixer till fluffy. Chill slightly. Shape into a ball. Place chopped nuts on waxed paper; gently roll cheese ball over nuts to coat. Makes 3 1/2 cups.

    That looks good! I might have to try that!

    That cheeseball sounds super yummy. Though, nut allergy in the family...so I would have to omit those =/

    Ours is Cheesy Brussel Sprout Bake and Waldorf Salad. Both are made a different way than most people would think and since I don't measure it makes giving people recipes hard
    DH: I have you. That's all I need.

    DH: Dayum, you are so beautiful, you make sweats and a tee look hawt.

    Can we also request holiday recipes in here too? I know of some I used to have during Christmas but don't have a recipe myself.

    ETA: If so, I'm looking for recipes for:

    Rum balls
    Peanut butter blossoms
