Holiday Cheeseball: Cranberry and Gorgonzola

Do you ever see a recipe and you remember everything that is in it, but you don't remember the amounts? That's where I am on this cheeseball. Jordan asked for wings for dinner tonight and I thought this cheeseball would be a wonderful accompaniment instead of bleu cheese dressing. When I got home, I couldn't find the this is what I came up with.

As you can see, it has all the traditional Christmas colors.

Holiday Cheeseball

8 Ounces Cream Cheese
1/4 Cup Gorgonzola Crumbles
3 Tablespoons Red Bell Pepper, finely minced
3 Tablespoons Green Bell Pepper, finely minced
1/4 Cup Onion, finely minced
3 Tablespoons Dried Cranberries, chopped

Mix all the ingredients, from into a ball and roll in chopped nuts.

This was really good on celery. I think next time I will add some salt and garlic to taste.

I'm sharing this recipe with my friends' holiday parties: Jerri at Simply Sweet Home's Holly Bloggy Christmas, and Linda at Coastal Charm's Christmas Open House.


  1. That's beautiful La, lovin' the colors! I've never tried Gorgonzola before (sheltered life, I know:@)

  2. Hi La, To have a cheeseball during the holiday with wings is perfect! Great Idea. *hugs*

  3. Ummm...sounds delicious. I just LUV a good cheese ball.

    Oh, and, yes, I did indeedy get a bell at the end of the train ride. And, I didn't include photos of him, but we had the BEST hobo ghost that INSISTED we all have HOT DOGS for Christmas dinner. :)))

  4. I think the best recipes are when we add a little of this and that. Your cheese ball looks delicious!
