The cheese ball recipe on About.com calls for 5 ounces of chopped dried beef, 8 ounces of cream cheese, 6 chopped green onions, 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the ingredients and let it refrigerate for one hour. Remove the mixture from the refrigerator and form the cream cheese into a ball.

The Armour website provides a slight variation on the About.com cheese ball recipe. Instead of Worcestershire sauce, salt and green onions, the Armour website suggests using 1/4 cup of sour cream, 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese and 1 teaspoon of radish. The recipe follows the same steps as the About.com recipe except for the refrigeration time. Armour suggests chilling the mixture for 15 minutes, then rolling it into a ball and adding the extra chipped beef before chilling it again.
