Four Ingredient Cheese Ball

Easy cheeseball for all of your holiday functions or gatherings


  • 2 packages of cream cheese – you can use original or Neufchatel
  • green onions (scallions) – 3 or 4 bunches sliced. No need to use the bulb. Only the green stuff! πŸ™‚
  • Buddig smoked ham lunch meat – Diced. This is the really inexpensive ham lunch slices next to the shredded cheese. It’s should be hanging up in a small bag.
  • 16 oz. bag of walnut halves and pieces


  • Mix the first 3 ingredients
  • Form the cheese mixture into a ball
  • Pour a good amount of walnuts onto a plate and spread them out (or use the hack I’ve heard about in the notes, below)
  • Roll the cheese ball onto the walnut covered plate – coating the cheese ball and adding more walnut pieces to the plate as needed
  • Serve with crackers


If you want to make the cheeseball ahead of time. You can cover it with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days before you need it.

Cover any leftovers with plastic wrap and store the cheese ball in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. *Walnuts may soften a bit.

Cheeseball Hack:

I haven’t tried this yet, but someone told me to spread the nuts onto a sheet of plastic wrap. Just set the ball into the middle of the nuts and pull the plastic wrap up and around the ball – coating it with nuts and shaping it at the same time.
