How to Make a Cream Cheese Log
Cheese logs make a wonderful appetizer for the holidays or for anytime. They are extremely easy to make and don’t even require you to use the stove or oven. All you need to make a delicious cheese log is a few simple ingredients and a refrigerator. To begin, gather the following ingredients:
2 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese
4 oz grated cheddar cheese
4 oz grated parmesan cheese
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp finely chopped onions
Dash of salt
Dash of red pepper
½ cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans
First, allow the different cheeses to sit out until they reach room temperature. This will make them easier to blend. Then, in a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and parmesan cheese and blend well. Add in 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce and 2 teaspoons of finely chopped or minced onions (if it is for kids then you may want to leave the onions out). Add a dash of salt and a dash of red pepper.
Blend all of the ingredients together in the large bowl and then split the mixture into two separate halves. Roll and shape each half into a log shape and then roll each log in the chopped walnuts or pecans until each log is fully covered in nuts. Wrap the logs in wax paper or aluminum foil. Finally, place the logs in the refrigerator or freezer and let them sit until they are chilled.
Lastly, take the logs out, slice and enjoy! This recipe makes two small cheese logs.
