A faithful follower asked a little while ago for the recipe for these Cream Cheese Balls. I am just now getting the chance to post it. :) These are a great alternative to "meat" balls with spaghetti. My family loves them!
4 Tb. butter or margarine
4 Tb. flour
1 cup milk
Melt butter in saucepan, add flour, mix and then slowly add milk, stir until thickened. Remove from heat, cover and set aside.
1 cup finely chopped nuts (almonds are my favorite)
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 pkg. onion soup mix
1 pkg. cream cheese
Mix dry ingredients, soften cream cheese, add to dry ingredients. Pour hot milk mixture into cream cheese mixture, stir well. Chill for 15 minutes. After chilled, form into 1/2 inch balls. Put 1/2 cup or so of bread crumbs into a 1 gallon storage bag, add cream cheese balls, and lightly shake until balls are covered with crumbs. Heat oil on medium heat in a fry pan. Add cream cheese balls, turning as necessary to lightly brown them. Eat with your favorite spaghetti sauce!
