I have been making this cheeseball for years. Sometimes I add a package of Knoor's vegetable soup mix. You may need to add some sour cream to make the consistancy right if you add the dry mix. I am making this recipe into individual cheeseballs about 1 inch in diameter for a Christmas party this year.
