Cheddar Cheese Log with Chives
A cheese log for every occasion—and no broken crackers.
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted a cheese log firm enough to hold its shape but soft enough to easily drag a cracker through at room temperature. To get there, we settled on a simple mixture of half cheddar cheese and half cream cheese with an addition of creamy mayonnaise. To flavor our cheddar-based log, we stirred in a bit of horseradish, some Worcestershire sauce, and minced garlic. This mixture was pliable enough to be easily shaped in plastic wrap, and after a trip to the freezer it had firmed up enough for us to roll it in minced fresh chives.
