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 (250 g each) cream cheese, softened
  • Coarsely chopped nuts

Steps

  • 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.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Special Touch: 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.
  • Tip 2
    Variation: Add about 2 teaspoons of a favourite dried herb—basil works especially well—to the cheese mixture for an extra layer of flavour.
