I need a cheeseball recipe

Preferrably one that will spread easily when cold without breaking the cracker and that is not covered in nuts. Do you have an easy one?

  • 8 oz brick x-tra sharp cheddar (shredded as fine as you can get it)
    8 oz cream cheese
    2 tbl spoons milk or white wine
    1 tsp worcestershire sauce
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp coriander

    place all ingred in food processor, and blend until it is creamy... scrape down the sides occasionally.

    chill for an hour, either in a pressed form, or roll into a ball once chilled. roll in chopped herbs (like basil, cilantro, or parsley) refrigerate another couple of hours before serving.

  • oh, was going to add that you can mix in roasted red peppers, or scallions, or anything- its a good base to add other flavors to. make it with gouda, and then add some crumbled bacon for a smoky treat... tasty...
