Yield: 1 Servings
|8.00 ounce||Old Cheddar Cheese, GRATED|
|8.00 ounce||Cream Cheese, SOFTENED|
|125.00 millilitre||Ale or beer|
|1.00 teaspoon||Dry mustard|
|¼ teaspoon||Cayenne pepper|
|½ cup||Finely chopped toasted pecans|
|½ cup||Chopped parsley (fresh)|
Place cheeses in food processor or blender, process until smooth. (I used a combination of by hand and an electric mixer) Gradually add ale, mustard and cayenne pepper. If mixture is soft, refrigerate until firm enough to hold shape. Mould into a disc shape ( a sphere or ball!!). Combine pecans and parsley. Pat the mixture onto the ball or roll the ball in the mixture until the cheese mixture is covered completely. Place on a serving plate or board and surround with crackers or flatbreads. Slices of apple are nice with this too.
This is an easy thing to make and is very tasty.
