Throughout the year, I’m invited to a ton of parties and events where I’m asked to bring a dish, potluck style. If you’re like me, it can be difficult to decide on just the right dish to prepare, especially when you run short of new ideas. Don’t worry though. I’ve got you covered with the perfect idea for almost any occasion and you won’t even need to worry about traveling with a crockpot or chafing dish.
Make a cheese ball! They are always crowd pleasers and so easy to make. Plus, there are endless combinations of flavors that you can tailor to fit the event. Hosting a birthday party or holiday celebration? Use colorful jimmies that match the theme. Going to an office party? Bacon and chives. Sharing a dish at a ladies’ tea party, brunch, or “coffee”? Chocolate is the answer.
Cheeseballs work well on tablescapes too. When I host a gathering, I like to create a beautiful table full of variety with different tastes, textures, shapes, and flavors. A cheese ball can almost always be found somewhere on my serving table. It’s never the main focal point, but always adds to the overall presentation. It gives just enough contrast to make my menu interesting, but still compliments the overall appeal.
This roundup is full of variations. I’m sure you’ll find the version for your next event in this list of the best cheeseball recipes.
