Easy and Delicious Party Cheese Log

IMG_20150913_113229 (1)When Food Sharing Network guest contributor Helena Dinis asked if I’d like a recipe for an easy-to-make cheese log, I jumped at the chance. Not only is it yummy and easy to make, it’s prepared ahead – an excellent choice all-around for holiday parties and other gatherings. Helena trialed it at her end-of-summer barbecue. Like all good cooks, she always has something good to serve up her sleeve.

  • 1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/2 cup drained and chopped roasted red peppers (from 7-ounce jar)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1 large apple, sliced
  • assorted crackers

Stir cream cheese, Worcestershire sauce and mustard until blended.

Stir in cheeses, peppers and chives.
