This Spinach Artichoke Cheese Ball recipe is perfect for the holiday season! It’s great to put out on game day, guests always love it and the best part is that it can be made ahead of time.
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.
