A few Christmases ago, my mother-in-law made these cheeseballs for all her neighbors. It is actually my sister-in-law’s (Melanie who posts atMy Kitchen Cafe) recipe, which she got from her in-laws. Whew! That seems like a convoluted mess of in-laws and relationships! :) Anyway, we kept and devoured a few of these cheeseballs ourselves over the Christmas break. Yum, yum! And of course I’ve made the recipe since, for baby showers and other get-togethers.
Anyway, the important thing is, IT’S REALLY GOOD. :) Oh, and it’s also really easy. That’s important, too. :)

4 (8-oz) squares of cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp onion salt
1 Tbsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. dried parsley
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
Set the cream cheese out on the counter well in advance, so it is soft and easy to mix.
Mix the cream cheese, onion salt, garlic salt, pepper, and parsley.
Then add the grated cheese. After it is mixed well, form into 4-5 balls and roll in chopped pecans.
