Got To Be NC

Momma’s Cheese Ball

This is a long time family favorite.  I can’t tell you how many times I have been asked for this recipe.  To be a little more creative, you can serve it in a fresh pineapple that has been scoped out or fresh peppers that have been cored.  To do this, don’t drain the pineapple and put all the nuts in before mixing.
