Holiday Cheeseball: Cranberry and Gorgonzola
Do you ever see a recipe and you remember everything that is in it, but you don't remember the amounts? That's where I am on this cheeseball. Jordan asked for wings for dinner tonight and I thought this cheeseball would be a wonderful accompaniment instead of bleu cheese dressing. When I got home, I couldn't find the recipe...so this is what I came up with.
As you can see, it has all the traditional Christmas colors.
8 Ounces Cream Cheese
1/4 Cup Gorgonzola Crumbles
3 Tablespoons Red Bell Pepper, finely minced
3 Tablespoons Green Bell Pepper, finely minced
1/4 Cup Onion, finely minced
3 Tablespoons Dried Cranberries, chopped
Mix all the ingredients, from into a ball and roll in chopped nuts.
This was really good on celery. I think next time I will add some salt and garlic to taste.
I'm sharing this recipe with my friends' holiday parties: Jerri at Simply Sweet Home's Holly Bloggy Christmas, and Linda at Coastal Charm's Christmas Open House.
