Guests Will Come Back For More: Feta Cheese Ball


Oh this is great!! If you love feta cheese, you will love this cheese ball. And what a perfect appetizer for any meal.


This recipe was inspired by the A+ Taste of Home Recipe book from Schools Across America. A graduation gift to me from one of my best buds and church family member. She knows exactly what I like and what my favorite things are. Isn't it great to have friends like that?


And just look what my amazing oldest daughter gave me for Mother's Day....An apron with Country Sugar sewn on the front. Another amazing thing when your children know their mother so well.....I can honestly say that I have raised some awesome children.


Don't limit this cheese ball to pretzels or crackers. This cheese ball is awesome stuffed in the well of a celery heart. I know, I tried it.....

Now, how did I create this amazing feta cheese ball appetizer? This is how:

Feta Cheese Ball

2 pkgs (8 oz.) cream cheese, soft
3 TBS olive oil
1 c. crumbled feta cheese
1/2 of a sweet onion, minced
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1 TBS fresh dill weed, a little more for sprinkling
2 tsp. dried oregano
3/4 tsp. coarsely ground pepper
Pretzels or Bagel chips for dipping

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and oil until smooth. Stir in the feta cheese, onions, garlic (I minced the onion and garlic together in a mini food chopper), dill, oregano, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
Shape cheese mixture into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for another hour. Plate and sprinkle with fresh dill. Garnish with pretzels or bagel chips.
