June's Recipe for Ham and Cheese Ball 

12 oz. cooked ham, chopped
8 green onions, chopped
2 - 8 oz. packages cream cheese
1 teaspoon garlic salt
2 cups pecans, chopped
Variety of crackers

Soften the cream cheese at room temperature. Chop the ham. (I usually get the kind that comes in a package already cubed.) Chop the green onions in a food processor. Add garlic salt. Add the cream cheese and ham and process until smooth. Place the mixture in a mixing bowl and shape into a ball. Spread the pecans out on a plate. Roll the cheese ball in the pecans to coat evenly. I usually place the cheese ball on a piece of waxed paper and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. It's delicious with a variety of crackers. Makes 2 large cheese balls.
