Scarecrow Cheese Ball

This guy is all dressed up and ready to appear on your Thanksgiving table. This is one time that you won’t have to worry about a scarecrow shooing away the birds!
What You Need
1 – 8 oz pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 small can of deviled ham
1/2 C. shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder (not salt!)
1 1/2 tsp onion powder (not salt!)
1 lg carrot
thin wheat crackers
1/2 C. pecans or walnuts, finely chopped
1 celery stalk
What You Do
In a large bowl, beat together cream cheese, deviled ham, cheddar cheese, garlic and onion powder until well combined. Remove approximately 1/4 of the mixture for the “shirt collar” and set aside. Using the remainder of the cheese mixture, shape it into a ball and place it on the platter that you will be using to serve it on. Using your fingers or the back of a spoon, gently flatten the circle to 3/4 inch thickness and smooth out the top top of the cheese ball. With the extra cheese mixture that you set aside, form it into a rectangle and lay it underneath the circle. Shape to form the collar of a shirt.
