About Amy Engberson

I live on a dairy with my husband and three boys. Although we are in the business of raising cattle, we really are in the business of raising boys. I am passionate about catching up with each other at meal times. My love language is food. And I hope that my men feel the love in every bite.

    Ouch! Your poor kiddo — hope everything turned out well! My family loves pickles, this dip sounds perfect. I need to start actually making the recipes I find in magazinges. 🙂

    That is rough about the tooth. 🙁 We had a baby tooth incident that turned gray, but nothing with permanent teeth, thank goodness. I hope everything is all fixed up now.
    This dill pickle cheeseball sounds delicious! I absolutely LOVE pickles.

    Hi! Looks yummy and so simple! Can I just use chopped up sliced dill pickles or is that too strong? Should it be relish?

  4. Billy says

    Your poor kid! I totally thought of the ‘All I want for christmas is my two front teeth’ song when you mentioned the story! Hopefully it all went well! Thank you for sharing this recipe, it looks delicious! I can’t wait to try it at home.

      He was a little sad for awhile but he’s crazy as ever now! I have to admit I was totally in love with his buck teeth though! I can’t wait for you to try this cheeseball either! It’s so yummy!

    I got a good chuckle out of this. My daughter had me make a dill pickle cheese ball when she was 5 or 6 and she is now 20. It is a little wild but so yummy. Great Minds!!!

    Could’ve been better. Following this recipe, it was too runny. Probably could’ve used another 8pz of cream cheese.

    What is a T? It should be more clear this could change the recipe exponentially. And I had to sift through all of the comments that weren’t even from people that ACTUALLY Made the recipe. That’s really annoying.

        Hi Amy! I made this and it turned out perfectly! It is so good. It’s so refreshing to see you being so nice to people on here. It’s just my opinion that if you are going to be cooking anything, you should know that when you read a standard recipe, T is for tablespoon. I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season!!!

          Can’t go wrong with Dill Pickle anything right? I try and remember to be nice because that’s how I would like to be treated. Sometimes I wish other people would stop and think of a kind way to phrase their comment/question instead of spatting off. I think they would be happier in the end. It’s the kind comments and well wishes that make blogging so rewarding! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a kind words! Merry Christmas to you too!

      Real pickles would taste fantastic! Glad it turned out so well for you! For those of us on a super tight schedule pickle relish is a great time saver! Either way this cheeseball is sure to make dill pickle lovers happy!

    I love this cheeseball! So tasty and easy to put together. I have used this to spread on thin sliced ham and rolled up for an appetizer. Heavenly!

    My Friend at work made this recently for our monthly
    Birthday Luncheon and it was AMAZING and I don’t even
    like Cheese Ball’s due to the fact I don’t like cold cheese.
    Will definitely try this for my Family! Thank You!!

    • Amy EngbersonAmy Engberson says

      How fun! Having a monthly birthday luncheon would be a blast! A Dill Pickle Cheeseballs would be such a fun recipe to share! I’m so happy you enjoyed it and can’t wait for you to make it for your family!

    Tends to be a fairly salty dip. Perhaps using half the recommended amount of pickle relish at first then add more to taste.

    • Amy EngbersonAmy Engberson says

      Dill pickles and cheese are both salty foods and so this cheeseball is pretty salty. It’s also easy to confuse onion powder with onion salt and if that happened the cheeseball would be even saltier. If you’d like to decrease the salty flavor I’d suggest cutting back a bit on the dill pickle relish and adding a bit of dill weed so you still get that yummy dill flavor. You could also look for low sodium dill pickle relish.
