Game Day Beef Ball

Not sure where exactly I acquired this recipe from but it has been a favorite for years…..this is actually best when made a day ahead, but if you can’t wait, it’s still delicious!  Give this a try, I’m sure it’ll become a favorite too!

3 (8 oz. pkgs.) Cream cheese, softened
1 whole bunch Green onions, chopped thinly
1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
1 tsp. Accent seasoning
2 pkgs. Buddig Beef OR Armour’s Dried Beef, Chopped

OK, so unless you want to build some bicep muscles, combine the 3 packages of softened cream cheese into a bowl and using a heavy duty mixer, cream them together until SMOOTH. Add the rest of the ingredients, leaving aside about 1/2 cup chopped beef for garnish.

Once everything is mixed; tear a sheet of plastic wrap and place the mixture into the center of plastic wrap and bring all the edges of plastic together, forming a ball.  Seal and place into refrigerator for at least 3 hours OR overnight!  This is best made a day ahead, but 3 hours is sufficient.

When ready to serve, place the beef ball with open side facing down on platter and peel the plastic wrap away.  Take the reserved 1/2 cup chopped beef and sprinkle it all over the ball, pressing it into the ball to adhere.   Serve with your favorite crackers, I like them with Ritz crackers and Wheat thins.  ENJOY!  GOOO NINERS!

Here is the beef I used:
