What is a Cheese Ball?
Well this has got to be one of the most popular party foods that you find at a party and on just about every Holiday table.  I think everyone loves cheese and I don't think I've met anyone who could pass a cheese ball without sticking a cracker in it.

Food Fact: Health & Nutrition
"In general, cheese supplies a great deal of calcium, protein, phosphorus and fat. A 30-gram (1.1 oz) serving of Cheddar cheese contains about 7 grams (0.25 oz) of protein and 200 milligrams of calcium. Nutritionally, cheese is essentially concentrated milk: it takes about 200 grams (7.1 oz) of milk to provide that much protein, and 150 grams (5.3 oz) to equal the calcium."
