Smokey Cheddah Cheese Ball

Nothing says the festive season like cocktail parties, appies, and festive Cheese Balls. Am I right? Slightly retro, mostly delicious and a star of the communal sharing table, might I introduce you to the "healthy" Smokey Cheddah Cheese Ball. This not only packs a powerful 1,2 in the fact that it's plant based but that it also has some natural…

Eggless Egg Salad
