This Easy Cheese Ball is simple to change to suit your taste by varying the type of hard cheese you use or changing the type of nut you roll it in. Crushed pretzels or chopped fresh herbs make an interesting coating as well.

12 oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup onion, finely minced

1 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (adjust to personal preference)

1 cup pecans, finely chopped
