Spinach Artichoke Cheese Ball ingredients in a bowl

A generous serving of cream cheese is mixed with spinach, artichokes, red bell pepper and two kinds of cheese.  Hidden Valley Buttermilk Ranch mix adds a zesty flavor.

One of the best parts about this recipe is that it’s can be made days ahead of time!

Once mixed, lay out 2 sheets of Glad® Press’n Seal® crossing over one another.  Place the mixture in the center and form into a ball, seal with the Press’n Seal and refrigerate.  The Glad Press’n Seal helps shape the ball, keeps everything fresh and no smells in the fridge. At this point you can leave the cheese ball in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

Once you’re ready to serve you can slightly reshape the ball if needed, unwrap the cheese ball and roll it in the prepared toppings.  Adding the toppings just before servings keeps them fresh and the bread crumbs crunchy.

You can serve with crackers, tortilla chips or veggies. It is also fantastic on small rounds of lightly toasted bread from the bakery.

  1. So so so very good. I used my food processor for chopping the spinach artichoke and red pepper. This gave a perfect texture to the cream cheese. Serving it in 2 days although I know it will be a hit with my crowd. Thanks!!5 stars

  2. The cheese ball has an ok taste but it was grainy in texture and no one would eat it. I followed the recipe exactly.2 stars
