SaS- Appetizer/Party Pleasers

Happy Thursday Seekers!  Once again, I'm linking up with my big sis for her SaS!  Stop by every Thursday for my very own recipes food making ideas!

Next to desserts, this is probably my favorite week!  I love, love, LOVE finger foods, party foods, appetizers, anything of the sort!  I was actually going to make something and share pictures this week, but I've been so busy blogging everynight!  Last night I was too busy at Supah's toothsoap Twitter party!  Good times!  (If you weren't there, you really missed out)!  I didn't win anything, but I totally picked up Tom Cruise as a follower, the TOM CRUISE!  Yes, he loves me!  I'm a total rock star!

Where was I, oh yeah, party foods!  Today I'm sharing my Cheese Ball.  Yep, that's it, simple, yet satisfying!  You're going to love this one, I PROMISE!  Everyone loves this cheese ball.  I recently threw Brand a baby shower and after slaving over all that food, the one thing everyone kept talking about was the my dang easy cheesy ball.  I'm so not kidding!

Buffee's Easy Cheesy Ball
2 8 oz blocks of cream cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup chopped ham (thinly sliced lunch meat chopped)

Yep, that's it!  Just 3 little ingredients!  I told you, E-A-S-Y!

I'm guessing on the amount of cheese and ham!  I never measure ANYTHING!  I just add it until it looks right to me!  That's my method!

The cream cheese will need to be at room temperature.  In a bowl combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and chopped ham.  I use my hands a hand held mixer to combine.  Roll into a ball and place in the fridge to set up.  I serve this with Ritz crackers or Nut Crisps (Toasted Pecan)!  You can use whatever crackers you like best! 

This also makes for great snackage!  Enjoy!  And don't forget to link up with Brand and check out all the other SaS party pleasers!
