Mennonite Monday - Cheese Dip Ball

Mennonite Monday started because I wanted to make recipes from the Bethesda Mennonite Church Cookbooks (both the yellow and the white cookbook for those of you who own them). I also wanted to take pictures of each recipe that I made, so I would know for future reference what the recipe should look like. I am by no means a great cook, but I think it will be fun to try new and different recipes each week. Not all of these recipes are for ethnic Mennonite food, but the women from Henderson know how to cook, so I can safely say that these recipes will be good. Check back each Monday for a new recipe and feel free to leave a comment if you have a favorite recipe from these cookbooks, or if you have some tips on what I should make and how I should make it.
Before I post the Sausage Potato Pie next week, I thought I would share another appetizer recipe.  This recipe, Cheese Dip Ball, is found on page 5 of the white church cookbook. 
Cheese Dip Ball 
11 oz cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 tbl grated onion
1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire
1 1/4 tsp accent
4 oz dried beef or ham chopped fine (reserve some for outside of the ball) 
Mix ingredients and shape into ball; roll in reserved meat.
  Since this is such an easy recipe I don't have pictures of the process used to make it, but if you can mix you will be just fine. One comment that I will make, is that it is hard to grate onion. Mine just turned into mush, so I would consider using minced onion next time or leaving the onion out completely.

Don't forget to vote on the poll for what I will be making for Mennonite Monday in two weeks.

  1. If you like green onion, this recipe is exceptionally good with green onion in it! :)
