Spicy Cheeseball

I haven’t had a chance to try this one yet, but I’m sure it’ll find it’s way to a holiday dinner somewhere.

Source: From the web somewhere (Entered by Ann Brown)
Serves: Depends on how hungry everyone is.

5 oz blue cheese (room temperature)
2 oz Gouda cheese (shredded)
8 oz cream cheese (softened)
10 oz sharp processed cheese food
1 tbsp Feta cheese
1 tsp garlic sale
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1.5 oz Farmer Brown's Pepper Jelly (any flavor)
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Step by Step Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, combine all of the cheeses, the garlic salt, onion, and the Farmer Brown’s Pepper Jelly. Mix well. Cover bowl tightly with Saran Wrap and put it in the refrigerator for a few hours, or overnight.
  2. When mixture is firm, shape it, with your well-washed hands, into a log or ball. Roll the log or ball in the chopped nuts.
  3. Put the cheese log/ball on a pretty tray, and surround it with assorted crackers. (You can shape this into any form you like, actually; you can even put it in a mold and turn it out onto the plate shaped like a clover or whatever, but I think it’s easier to scoop it up with crackers if it’s shaped like a log.)
