This easy and flavorful Shrimp Cheese Ball is always a crowd-pleasing appetizer. It can easily be made ahead of time, too!
My mama has been making this cheese ball for as long as I can remember. It’s always the first appetizer that goes on my plate at our annual Christmas eve dinner… I look forward to it every year!
Prepare as instructed (do not coat with chopped pecans). Store in an airtight container (or cover in plastic wrap, then place in a resealable plastic bag) in the fridge for up to 3 days. Coat with chopped pecans about 10 minutes before serving.
Can I Use Precooked Shrimp in this Recipe?
I prefer to cook my own shrimp, but precooked shrimp can be used. You will need approximately 2-¼ cups chopped cooked shrimp.
