This makes a HUGE cheese ball, so I split it in half. I took the first one to a party shortly after I made it and it had few takers. I took the second one to my moms birthday party 2 days later and 5 people ate almost ALL of it. Key,make it ahead of time!

Loved it! Next time I will double the pimientos and only do 1 and 3/4 cups cheddar. However, it is perfect the way it is, too!

Several months ago I purchased your Square pan. It has become my favorite pan in my kitchen. I've had people ask me where I purchased it. They wanted one I purchased mine at Wal mart in villa Rice Ga. I have been looking for it to come back. Has it been discontinued. I would love to purchase another one Thank You and a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.

Have made this, left out the blue-cheese, was delicious. Thanks for sharing.

Instead of bleu cheese, you can substitute feta cheese. My husband is allergic to bleu cheese, so we substitute feta cheese all the time. You can also substitute feta cheese in Paula's roasted potato salad and it is delicious!

I've made this several times and it's FANTASTIC! I've even taken a little of the leftovers and spread it on a sandwich with some ham. If you hate bleu cheese, you could use feta, gorgonzola, or even just sub some more cheddar - all you'll be missing is the somewhat sharp flavor of the bleu cheese (but really, it's not that noticeable with everything else in the cheese ball).

I had a get together with high school friends at an outdoor concert and brought along this cheese ball. It looked great and tasted even better. I got many good comments on it! Thanks, Paula, for another great recipe!
