Parmesan is known as the "King of Cheese," and this savory, super-simple Parmesan cheese ball illustrates this deliciously. This cheese ball seems gourmet, but it couldn't be easier to prepare and serve — and it's so addictive, your friends will beg for the recipe.
There are countless ways to prepare a cheese ball, and the recipe below will please the most cheese-centric noshers. Although its ingredients are mostly white, that doesn't mean it's bland; in fact, it's full of salty, cheesy, garlicky flavor. The chopped nuts, both inside and around the cheese ball, add a delicious crunch.
A few tips: Make sure your cream cheese is as close to room temperature as possible to make it easier to combine the ingredients. If you're watching carbs, skip the crackers, and serve a fresh vegetable crudité instead. If the cheese ball is too thick to work with, add a tablespoon of milk.
