This is also good when made with Swiss cheese. I saw someone on TV add chopped bacon to the cheese mixture. I’ve never done this. (I have two vegetarian sisters.) But it sounds good to me. This recipe comes from the Pillsbury cookbook my mom received for a wedding present.
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3-oz cream cheese
3 T Mayo
½ tsp Worcestershire
1 tsp white wine
dash each of
Sliced or chopped olives, OR chopped nuts OR chopped fresh parsley, OR dried beef to roll in. (OR a combination that makes sense)
Combine ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Blenders will work in a pinch, but they will make you swear. Cover and chill until firm. Shape mixture into a ball and roll in nuts or whichever covering you’re using. . Wrap in plastic wrap and chill until serving.
