While its namesake is cheesy you may find this savory treat a little more sensible. Served with crackers.
I'm working on a post with all the pictures from our 14 year old's recent Jane Austen themed birthday party. In the meantime here is the recipe for the "Mr. Collins Cheese-ball" that Chiquita made as one of the appetizers for her older sister's birthday and movie night!
Mr. Collins Cheese-ball
- 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
- 8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 3 green onions, chopped (whites and greens)
- 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp. dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp. dried parsley
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 cup pecans, chopped
Mix the cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, onions, Worcestershire sauce, oregano, parsley, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and salt together until well-combined.
Turn the mixture onto a large sheet of plastic wrap, cover and shape into a ball. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to one hour.
Place the chopped pecans on a small plate, remove the cheese ball from the fridge and gently roll in the pecans, helping them to stick to the outside of the cheese ball.
Serve with crackers.
