Your guests will want the recipe for this cheesy spread filled with crunchy nuts, chopped onion and garlic flavor. The chopped nut coating makes a good thing even better.

Ingredients

2/3
cup grated Parmesan cheese
2/3
cup finely chopped nuts
1
small onion, finely chopped (1/4 cup)
1
tablespoon milk
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1/4
teaspoon garlic powder
2
packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
Coarsely chopped nuts

Directions

  • 1 Stir together all ingredients except coarsely chopped nuts until well blended. Shape into ball; roll in coarsely chopped nuts.
  • 2 Wrap cheese ball in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 8 hours but no longer than 48 hours. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before serving.
Tips  

Make a stunning presentation by sprinkling the cheese ball with chopped fresh parsley. Place cheese spread on a pretty serving platter, and surround it with a variety of crackers so guests can choose what they like. Try one of the cracker variety packs containing several types of crackers in one box.

Add about 2 teaspoons of a favorite dried herb—basil works especially well—to the cheese mixture for an extra layer of flavor.
