CHEESE RING by Stacy McSpadden
Several people asked for the cheese ring recipe last night at our Valentine's Refresher. So glad you enjoyed it.
16 oz. Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated (Does better if you grate it yourself instead of using the pre-packaged grated cheese)
16 oz. Medium Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated
1 small onion, grated
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 cup pecans, chopped
Strawberry preserves or pepper jelly
Combine cheeses, onion, mayonnaise, and red pepper. Mix well. Sprinkle 1/4 cup pecans in well-oiled 7 cup ring mold.
Press cheese mixture in mold. Chill until firm.
Unmold on platter.
Pat rest of pecans on cheese ring.
Fill center of the ring with preserves or pepper jelly.
Serve with crackers.
