Goode & Gooseberry Project: Pecan Wrapped Blue Cheese Ball

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this Goode & Gooseberry Patch Project Recipe, but I REALLY liked this Pecan-Wrapped Blue Cheese Ball.

I whipped up a couple of these (one with blue cheese and one without) for my big bloggy FREEZE-O-RAMA day. (Psst... the Pampered Chef giveaway is ending soon...)

Start with 2 blocks cream cheese- softened...

With 2 cups shredded cheddar and 1 stick of butter-softened

Throw in 1 1/2 t garlic powder

2 T "shire" sauce-blurry

2 T dry minced onion

Now toss in the blue cheese or do what I did and split in half and only add the blue cheese to half.

Now take out your frustrations on a small bag of pecans...


Pulverized perfection ;)

And roll...

Now mark the blue cheese one with a pecan.

A great way to offer up a cheese ball two ways-- to accommodate any picky eaters in holiday crowds.
