One of the places we went was back to my Alma Mater for a Faculty/Staff Social, sponsored by the Alumni Board. Alumni brought easy-to-serve food items to contribute to the table, so that sent me to my recipe files for something to take along with me.
|This is what you need.....|
|....to produce this!|
1 pound sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 cup pecans, chopped
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 medium onion, grated
1 clove garlic, pressed
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco, or other hot sauce
1 cup strawberry preserves
- Combine first six ingredients and mix well. Chill. Mold into ring. Fill with strawberry preserves. Serve with crackers. Unique flavor!
I think you are able to see that I lined the ring mold with plastic wrap, then packed the cheese mixture into it before chilling. When I unmolded it onto the serving dish, it was really easy to remove the plastic wrap. Missing from the first picture is the jar of strawberry preserves. I am a fan of Polaner sweetened with Fruit Juice, and that is the brand I used.
|The house/property where social was held.|
The recipe is one I obtained from a co-worker around 20 years ago, so I think many of you will already know all about it.:-) I added assorted crackers that I had bought at Trader Joe's. Oh, and I also made some Ranch Oyster Crackers. I believe that recipe has been on the blog several months ago.
There have been occasions for celebrations recently, and that will be the focus of the next post.
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
