Bob's Shrimp Ball
2 (8 oz packages of brick Philly cream cheese)
1 small onion minced
3 (4.25 oz cans baby shrimp)
Horseradish ( use homemade IF you happen to have it available!)

Leave the cream cheese out for awhile it makes it easier to mash, it should be semi-smooth.  Drain the shrimp well & place in a bowl then mash with a fork till flaky. Peel and mince 1 small yellow onion.  Combine all 3 items, blending well. Line a round bowl with plastic wrap add mixture and chill for 2 to  4 hours.

TO SERVE: Turn bowl upside down on platter and release mixture to platter. Remove plastic wrap.  Pour sauce over ball,...serve with crackers of your choice.

1 oz lemon juice with some finely grated rind
1 (14 oz bottled catsup)
4 tbs. bottled horseradish ( or start with 2 tsp. homemade) then add more to taste.  

Mix well.
Serve with any cracker of your choice.... like water crackers, plain Ritz etc.

This looks pretty if you use a glass dish or platter, place the shrimp ball in a smaller dish in the center pour the sauce over it and place the crackers around the larger plate.
