A great cheese ball to put on your nibble tray for when guests arrive.


  • 300 grams Mild Cheddar Cheese

  • 300 grams Strong Vintage Cheese

  • 300 grams Gouda Cheese

  • Jar of Cream Cheese

  • 4 ti 6 gherkins

  • 1 small onion

  • Curry Powder

  • Salt & pepper


  • 1.

    Grate each of the cheeses into a mixing bowl.

  • 2.

    Chop the gherkins and onion into very small cubes, add to the bowl.

  • 3.

    Add salt and pepper to taste.

  • 4.

    Mix in the jar of cream cheese a heaped tablespoon at a time.

  • 5.

    Use you hands to squeeze the mixture together.

  • 6.

    It should be quite moist.

  • 7.

    Roll into balls about fist size. You should have enough mixture for 2 or 3 cheese balls.

  • 8.

    Roll the balls in a bowl of curry powder to cover the ball in full.

  • 9.

    Refrigerate to set, then eat.

  • 10.

    Put the extra cheeseballs in a freezer bag and freeze for that raining day. I always have at least 2 or 3 in my freezer at anytime. They defrost within the hour.


Double the receipe and freeze the extras for unexpected guests.
