Olive Cheese Ball, Cheap Recipes

This cheese ball is a big hit with minimal time invested to make it.  If the items are bough on sale it's can be considered a cheap recipe.   Because the olives are the major taste, a cheaper cream cheese can be used without deterring from the finished product. This recipe makes two.

16 ounces cream cheese
1 can black olives, chopped into small pieces
1 jar green olives, chopped into small pieces
garlic powder to taste
hot sauce to taste

Mix all ingredients together.  Form into a ball and wrap in cellophane.  Refrigerate until used.  Serve with crackers and fruit on the side.


  1. Cream cheese is very versatile and can be prepared with so many different flavors,
    with herbs or tomato paste e.g. We buy olives as open goods at the cheese counter. They
    usually keep them in wooden containers. This way you can choose different sorts of olives.
    Pure or with herbs.

  2. Thank you for this recipe . I loved cheese balls. Hope you are wellx
