"We love this cheeseball. We have it every Christmas! The onions and pimentos add just the right amount of flavor without overpowering the cheese."

"This was scrumptious! I had never made a cheese ball, so was a little hesitant. I added 1/2 cup of finely chopped pecans and that was good too! I will definitely make it again. Next time, I'll be sure to use finely shredded cheese."
