This savory cheese ball is full of flavor with an added kick.

Yesterday was National Cheese Ball Day and tomorrow is National Garlic Day, so here is a recipe that incorporates both celebrations. It’s perfect for parties or as a stay-at-home, enjoy the evening, snack. The options are endless. During the fall and winter seasons I like to add chopped bacon and a variety of toasted nuts.
