Holiday Cheeseball and Chambourcin Wine
This is one of our family's favorites, and it's so easy to make! Serve it with your favorite cracker. It pairs perfectly with any of our dry reds, especially the Chambourcin. Hope you enjoy it too!
* 1pkg of pecan pieces. I used the pkg that was 1 1/2 cups
Toast pecan pieces in the oven. I usually put them in a preheated oven set at 350 degrees for about 5-6 minutes. Be careful...you do not want to burn them. Let them cool while you mix the cheeses.
*Soften one 8 oz. cream cheese (bring to room temp)
*Shred 1 lb. sharp cheddar cheese
Mix these two together
*Add 2 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce
& 1/4 tsp. onion powder
Stir until well mixed
**I use my hands to form two balls from the mixture. However, you can make smaller balls and get 4. (They do make a nice hostess gift!) Roll the balls in the pecan pieces, and refrigerate until ready to use. I cover mine in plastic wrap to keep it fresh.
