Janice’s Shrimp Cheese-ball
2 8 ounce packages of cream cheese
1 can small shrimp*
3 tablespoons dry minced onion
1 tablespoon Bon Appetite seasoning
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
Combine all but nuts and then form into ball and roll in the walnuts. Refrigerate several hours for best flavor.
* I often use (imitation) crab that I buy at Costco in place of the shrimp.
The history of the recipe:
Many years ago at Sunshine Acres when Jason was little we had a cook that we became good friends with. Nancy had a daughter named Janice and as single parents we often took the kids on picnics and outings together. On one of our fun picnics Janice made this cheese-ball. Yummy! It has been the appetizer at more company or holiday dinners than I can remember.
