Turkey Cheese Ball
The holidays are one of my favorite times of year. I LOVE all holidays. There is something so magical about the wonder of a holiday. Even though my boys are getting much older I still love to put all the extra special touches on the holiday. With any hope before I know it I will have grand babies running around on the holidays as well enjoying our adorable Turkey Cheese Ball.

Homemade Cheese Ball Vs Homemade
Either. You are welcome to take the time and make a homemade cheese ball or skip that and head to the store.
We love a sharp cheese or bacon style cheese ball in our home. The tang, creamy and savory flavors always win us over! So do whatever you prefer in terms of buying or making homemade.
What Type of Crackers to Use for Turkey Shaped Cheese Ball
I used Ritz but you can use any round shaped cracker or even an oval like Town House could work. If you got creative even pretzels might work!
How to Store Cheese Ball
When you are not serving the cheese ball you will want to store in the fridge. Aim to not leave your cheese ball out for more than 2 hours at a time.
If you do before you hit that 2 hour mark put back in the fridge for up to 30 minutes to raise the temperature. You don’t want it to sit out for too long or bacteria grows at a rapid pace.
Other Holiday Recipes to Pair With Turkey Cheese Ball
- Instant Pot Cranberry | You can’t have Thanksgiving without cranberry… right? This recipe is crazy simple.
- Pumpkin Creme Brûlée | The ultimate dessert to impress loved ones. Creamy, sugar crusted layer and more.
- Instant Pot Green Bean Casserole | One of my favorite side dishes. When you use the pressure cooker it cooks in a fraction of the time!
If you plan to have a big crowd make a few cheese balls to present your family. Write labels and put next to them so they know the flavor.
This is such an easy appetizer that I recommend trying. It takes minimal effort but offers a fun presentation for young and old to enjoy.
How to Store Leftovers
The cheese ball needs to be stored in the refrigerator. You could put crackers in a sealable bag and store on the counter. Then store the ball in the fridge for up to 5-7 days. Make sure it is covered good and use your best judgement in terms of if it has gone bad or not.
