Go Smell the Cheese Log!

Posted on September 15th, 2008 by Funkygirl012003

The air is changing over here.  It’s crisping up outside, the air is cooler and leaves are starting to change.  Yep, it’s getting to be the holiday season.  I’m thinking about all the wonderful holiday treats we’ll soon start making up.  In my house it’s kind of like we have one long holiday season from Halloween thru New Year’s. 

It’s also a time for our special holiday foods so we’ve started dusting off those recipes and gathering materials for roast turkey, halloween cookies, sugar cookies, cheese spreads, homemade candies, sauerkraut balls, clam chowder, oyster stuffing, gravies, deli platters and more.  It’s mouthwatering to think aboutl Here’s our simple and tasty recipe for a cheese log spread.  You don’t even need a measuring cup!  This one’s so good to eat and oh so bad for you.

  • 1 8 ounce package of cream cheese
  • A couple handfuls of strong shredded cheddar
  • A few liberal dashes of Worcestershire Sauce
  • A small palmful of quartered chunks of pepperoni
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  1. Leave the cream cheese and cheese out for a couple hours to soften.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until cheddar is mostly broken up in cream cheese.
  3. Place covered in fridge for a few hours for flavors to mix and spread to harden.
  4. Remove spread and form into a log shape.
  5. Roll in your choice of outer topping from a mix of herbs like chives and oregano to crushed walnuts or crushed dried bread. 
  6. Place in fridge to firm back up. 
  7. Serve with crackers.

This one is bound to add a few pounds over the holidays.  No doubt you all have different kinds of holiday treats you prepare with your own families.  What holiday foods will you be making up that are really bad, but too good to pass up?

  1. For Christmas since I can remember, I have been responsible for the cookies. Usually, I make, at least 6-7 different cookies and candies all from scratch and some of my own recipes. I usually include two new things. I also give them as gifts to friends and coworkers and the Nordstrom department that I shop in all the time. But, since I haven’t been able to even cook, I found a bakery that tastes like homemade. In fact, my family thought I made them, but I told them the truth. I don’t know what I’ll be up for this year…maybe, my English Toffee that melts in your mouth and doesn’t stick to your teeth. But, that is always my assignment.

  2. By the way, were do you live…there is no crisp in the air and leaves aren’t turning. Ah, but I live in Southern California and I’m wearing shorts and a tank top in an air conditioned house and I’m warm. It is hot outside and the palm trees and pine trees are green, the roses are blooming…what is this fall you speak of?

    I must admit I do like Chrimbo food.

    I particularly like slaughtering the turkey. they can normally take a few decent punches before they go over though. I think its cruel to cut their throats so I prefer a traditional English kicking to see him off.

    ‘Blue soup recipe?’

    hmmmmmm tell more Bridget……

    Ok thats one I must try … and no cooking so Moppet can maybe do it… am looking for no cooking recipes for her… she can make gingerbread and cakes, knead dough and do the piklet and pncake thing… but a no cook means she can do it unsupervised… like a big girl..lol..
    My Christmas favs.. generally will be roast chicken, prawns and seafood, salad, pasta salad, etc… cold meats like ham, no turkey though…
    Choclate ripple cake made by Moppet, and a pavlova, fruit salad and dips and cheese niblies as well as the standard choclate peanuts, cherries and stone fruits… oh how I love christmas…… ymmm sorry just wipeing my chin….
