Blue Cheese and Date Cheese Ball

Sally Muhl


  • 1 bunch Basil leaves, washed and patted dry
  • 1 1/4 cups dates, finely chopped
  • 4 oz blue cheese
  • 1 package Assorted crackers, for serving
  • 16 oz cream cheese, softened


In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, combine blue cheese and cream cheese. Process until smooth and blended. Transfer to air-tight container and chill in refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

Once chilled, form cheese into 6 even sized balls and roll each blue cheese ball in chopped dates. Serve cheese set on clean basil leaves. Arrange on a platter or cheese board with assorted crackers.
