Cheese balls of all kinds and shapes are always popular at a party or get-together of any kind, and this Berry Medley Cheese Log is the best I’ve ever tasted!


5 ounces of blue cheese, room temperature

2 ounces of shredded Gouda cheese

8 ounces of cream cheese, softened

10 ounces of sharp processed cheese food

1 Tbs. of Feta cheese

1 tsp. garlic salt

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

One 1.5-ounce jar of Berry Medley Pepper Jelly

1/2 cup chopped pecans


In a large bowl, combine all of the cheeses, the garlic salt, onion, and the Berry Medley Pepper Jelly.  Mix well.  Cover bowl tightly with Saran Wrap and put it in the refrigerator for a few hours, or overnight.

When mixture is firm, shape it, with your well-washed hands, into a log.  Roll the log in the chopped nuts.

Put the cheese log on a pretty tray, and surround it with assorted crackers. 

Put the tray out for your guests and stand back.  You might get trampled in the mad rush that will surely follow!

(Any of the Texas Pepper jelly flavors will work with this recipe; I just like the Berry Medley mixed with the various cheeses, best.)

(You can, of course, shape this into a ball instead of a log, but I think it’s easier to scoop it up with crackers if it’s shaped like a log.)
