Cranberry Cheddar Cheeseball
Cheddar Cranberry Cheeseball - fast and easy!
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese ( I like it sharp, but whatever blows your skirt up)
1 cup Hellman's Mayonnaise
1 small onion, shredded
2/3 cup dried cranberries
1/2 - 1 cup finely chopped pecans, depending on how much you love pecans
Use a food processor to finely finely chop the cranberries, then shred the onion, then shred the cheese. Don't bother cleaning the prep bowl between ingredients - this is supposed to be FAST. Just dump them in a mixing bowl as you go.
Mix in the mayo. Mound it all on a pretty plate and coat with the chopped pecans. Chill for at least 3 hours. It will firm up. Serve with crackers.
- You can form the mixture into a ring and then put some cranberry chutney in the middle if you are feeling really fancy.
-If you have any left over, you can also put it in an oven safe dish and bake for about 20 minutes at 350. Serve with crackers of chunks of french bread. Amazing.
