Holiday Cheese Spread

You know how I said that the Glutino Vegetable Crackers would be fab with some sort of cheese spread? I was right.

gluten free crackers and cheese
Here is the delightfully simple, very delicious cheese ball recipe we bust out every holiday.

10 oz grated white american cheese
1 block of cream cheese
1/8 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. cayenne pepper

When the cheeses are at room temperature and soft, blend with a hand mixer. Add in the spices and blend some more. Roll it into a ball or log and sprinkle paprika on the outside, or roll it in some paprika. Let it cool in the fridge for a few hours for the flavors to meld, then serve it with crackers.

Sometimes I mix in some slivered almonds, or garnish it with green olives.

Can't go wrong with cheese and more cheese! Bet that cayenne pepper adds a nice kick.
