Walnut blue cheese spread.

I’ve had a request to bring this walnut-blue cheese spread to Thanksgiving—again (it’s THAT good)—so I thought I’d share the recipe—again.

I originally spotted this easy recipe on the blog Homesick Texan, and I doctored it a bit, swapping in walnuts because I love the combination of walnuts and blue cheese. You know what they say: It’s not the holidays without a cheese ball.

holiday cheese ball

8 oz. cream cheese
4 oz. blue cheese (I used Maytag, my favorite)
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 cup of toasted walnuts, coarsely chopped

Blend the cheeses until smooth, blend in garlic and Worcestershire. Form into a log, then roll in toasted walnuts. Chill.

  4. Another hit! I had been making Amy Sedaris’ cheese ball for all my gatherings, so I needed to shake it up a little bit. Only change I made was rolling it into a ball using wax paper, chilling, then rolling in the toasted walnuts.
