Soo. . . it may not be this cold . . . BUT we have been LOVING this "cooler" weather! I have spent as much time as possible outside. . .and it has been BEAUTIFUL! My fall decorations are out, Gus Gus is having so much fun hunting with Daddy or Grandpa, college football is everywhere, and I have a date with a Pumpkin Spice Latte on Thursday!
I served this cheese ball last week for some friends and Parker got so excited when he saw that I had fixed this! It is one of his favorite "appetizers!" This is a perfect "non-dip" for a football party! Chips, queso and salsa seem to be a staple while watching football but this is a wonderful option that the guys (and girls) in my family LOVE!
1/2 lb Sharp Cheddar
1/2 lb Medium Cheddar, Mild Cheddar or American Cheese
1 c. pecans
1 c. mayonnaise (just use enough to hold the cheese ball together)
3-6 chopped green onions
1/8 - 1/4 tsp cayenne
Raspberry, raspberry jalapeno/chipolte jelly, or jalapeno jelly (I always use jalapeno jelly!)
Mix everything except the jelly together. Mold the way you want and refrigerate it (for at least 10 - 15 min) Before serving top it with jelly!
