Parsley Nut Cheese Ball....
During the holidays, people drop in to visit. So this is something you can put together quickly and with little or no fuss. I like it best with some of the water wafers you can find now and also my favorite cracker is a club cracker.
Parsley Nut Cheese Ball
2 8 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
2 Cups shredded cheddar cheese, softened
1 Dash cayenne pepper
1 Tablespoon finely chopped onion
1 Tablespoon finely chopped pimento
1 Tablespoon finely chopped green pepper
1 Teaspoon lemon juice
2 Teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
Dash salt to taste
Chopped parsley and pecans for coating
Mix the cheddar cheese and cream cheese until well mixed. Add the other ingredients except the parsley and pecans, and mix well. Shape into a ball and roll in nuts and parsley. Chill until served. Serve in the center of a platter with your favorite breads or crackers. At Christmas time, this can be shaped into a cone shape instead of a ball and just use the parsley to coat it. Place a plastic star on top and you have a Christmas tree.
Till next time......
