If you’re anything like me, you’re likely to find it hard to stop snacking once you’ve tasted it. I’ve been eating this cheese ball for lunch, dinner, and breakfast the past few days.

The first time I made this, the boys devoured it in minutes, so I “tested” the recipe a second time, just to make sure I’d have some stashed away for myself later.

All the flavor of an Everything Bagel in a spreadable cheeseball!

I love the ease of making a cheese ball in advance and tucking it away in the fridge until you’re ready to serve it. Whether you shape it into a ball or scoop it into a dish, this Everything Bagel Cheese Ball is going to be a crowd favorite for your holiday table.

I’ve partnered with The Spice Hunter to share this recipe with you today. Their Everything Bagel Crunch seasoning mix is a new favorite here. As much as I love everything bagels, this seasoning mix makes it possible to enjoy those flavors on a whim.

Everything Bagel Crunch includes sesame seeds, garlic, black sesame seeds, toasted onion, onion, and poppy seeds. It is a salt-free mix, which makes it terrific for recipes like these that don’t require any additional salt.

You can use the Everything Bagel Crunch to make this Everything Bagel Butter too. My family loves it!

How To Make A Cheese Ball

It’s almost ridiculously simple to make a cheese ball. Place the cream cheese in a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth, about 1 minute.

Scrape the sides of the bowl and sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the seasonings over the cream cheese. Mix again until well combined, about 1 minute.

Tear or roughly chop the ham into 1-inch pieces and add to the bowl with the cream cheese. Beat with the mixer until the ham has broken down into smaller pieces, about 1 minute.

Add the cheese and mix again. Spread plastic wrap on the counter and scoop the cheese mixture onto it. Form into a ball with the spatula and wrap tightly. Chill at last 1 hour. Sprinkle with the remaining spice blend before serving.

I typically make a cheeseball a day or two in advance of serving it. (Even though it’s super easy to make this recipe, it’s nice to have it done ahead of time.)

During the holiday season, the more things I can take care of in advance, the better. The cheeseball will keep nicely in the refrigerator for up to a week.

How To Serve A Cheese Ball

We typically serve a cheese ball with crackers, pretzels, and fresh vegetables. The Everything Bagel Cheese Ball is also terrific on toasted bagels or bread.

My favorite way to serve this one is on bagel crisps, the buttery salty cracker-like toasts are a perfect match for the creamy flavorful cheese.
