Bite sized cheeseball appetizer dressed up in red white and green, served with Wellington Cracked Pepper Crackers.


  • 16 oz (2 Blocks) Cream Cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 C Chipped Beef, diced
  • 2 Green Onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 TBSP Dried Cranberries, diced very small
  • 1/4 C Fresh Parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 C Grated Parmesan Cheese


  • In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese, beef, green onion, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. You can also do this in your mixer with the paddle attachment.
  • Put the cheeseball into the fridge to firm up a bit – about a half hour.
  • Use a melon baller or a regular table spoon to portion the cheeseball into bite sized pieces, then roll them into circles in your hands.
  • Chop up the cranberries and parsley. Put them separately into two small bowls, and also put the parmesan into a third bowl.
  • Roll the cheeseballs into the cranberries, parsley, and parmesan, then arrange on a serving board. Use rosemary, eucalyptus, or olive leaves to decorate and serve with Wellington Crackers.
