Okay, so the folks at the office scheduled a Halloween potluck and I told the Missus. Without hesitation, she said, “Do you want a Spooky Eye Cheese Ball?”
Well, there’s a big DUH.
Ms. Strutts’ Spooky Eye Cheese Ball
Note: This is a double recipe, serves a small village.
(2) 8 oz. bricks of Philadelphia Cream Cheese.
(1) cup grated pepper jack cheese.
(1) cup grated sharp cheddar cheese.
(3) oz chopped dry salami.
(1) bunch green onions, diced. Save green ends.
(2) tsp. Worcestershire sauce, more or less to taste.
Mush ingredients into room temperature cream cheese in a glass bowl.
Refrigerate it overnight.
Dump it face down onto a serving plate.
Provide crackers and spread knife.
Tell everyone that it’s a Spooky Eye Cheese Ball.
Optional *ahem* Decoration:
Sliced black olives for “pupil.”
Sliced pimentos for “veins.”
Sliced green onion ends for “eyelashes.”
It looks real stupid but that’s part of the fun.
Hell, it’s a Spooky Eye Cheese Ball, for God’s sake. (Bonus: Wait until all or most of your guests have sampled it, then tell them that you mixed it with your toes.)
BTW, you can’t copyright recipes.
