Descent into Madness: Turducken of Cheeseballs


For anyone attempting to create the Turducken of Cheeseballs as made famous by the folks over at Chow, there is one warning you should taken into consideration: this whole project takes approximately three hours to complete from start to finish. In addition, I recommend two people put it together. And preferably one with sculpting skills to shape the cheese over each delicious layer. I particularly enjoyed the final layer of blue cheese topped with bacon, sliced almonds and pecans.

Is it worth it? Well yes, if you love cheese AND have to feed A LOT of people. While this 5-pound monstrosity was well-received by people at the office potluck, only a small dent was created in the ball— and there were more than 30 mouths to feed! Each layer complimented each other and didn’t overwhelm. Every cheese layer was whipped with cream cheese, which helped with the sculpting and tempered the flavors of even the sharpest cheeses.

So without further commentary, I present the Turducken of Cheeseballs.

  1. Wow, you must really like your coworkers to take three hours to make that for an office party! I’ve never heard of it, but now I really want to try it!

  2. I’m in love and want to marry that cheeseball. You have no idea how happy it makes me to see a cheeseball at a Cali potluck. I grew up with cheeseballs at every holiday and party in Ohio, and when I talk about them, people always think I’m joking! Happy New Year to ya. I may just have to make that one at my next parteeeee.
