I love cheese. There, I said it. And I, along with many other Texans, am very excited for National Cheese Lovers Day. From Grilled Cheese sandwiches to Three Cheese Enchiladas or Macaroni and Cheese, there are so many recipes to make with cheese.
Cheese is pretty versatile, too. You can use it as a main ingredient or to add flavor and texture. And it’s good in everything from breakfast all the way to supper.
I must say, though, my favorite thing about cheese is the number or types and varieties. Today, we’re working with two of them.
For Cheese Logs, you will need…
2 pkg. cream cheese, softened
2 c. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 1/2 c. pecans, chopped
2 tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tbsp. onion, diced
1 tbsp. red bell pepper, diced
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. liquid smoke
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
This recipe takes mere moments to make. And the flavors are oh so good. And it gets even better with the amount of time you let is sit chilling. Two hours is just about perfect in my opinion.
This recipe is great for parties or game night and will add some extra flavor to your favorite crackers or veggies. Everything is better with a sprinkle or more of cheese. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
