Just About Everything Cheese Ball

Beat in Swiss and Cheddar, onion, pimentos, relish, 1/2 the bacon, 1/2 c. pecans, salt and pepper. Cover and chill until firm. Combine remaining ingredients in small bowl. Turn cheese mixture onto a clean sheet of wax paper or foil. Roll cheese ball in mixture to coat. Wrap in foil and chill. Let stand 30 minutes at room temperature before serving with crackers.
Notes: If you use a mixer instead of a processor, make sure the onion is finely chopped. You can also make 2 small balls instead of one large. Make sure not to add too much relish though it will taste good just be more like a spread instead .

Sun-Dried Tomato Cheese Ball

8 oz Cream cheese
8 oz Unsalted butter - OR margarine
1 cup Parmesan - freshly grated
2 tablespoon Olive oil
2 cup Basil leaves - fresh, lightly packed
Crackers (your favorite)
BLANCHING TECHNIQUE: Bring 1-quart of water to boil. Submerge tomatoes in boiling water for 3 minutes to reconstitute. Take 4 aside and cut into strips.
In a food processor, combine cream cheese, butter, Parmesan, olive oil and remaining sun-dried tomatoes. Process until smooth. Place in refrigerator for about 30 minutes, or until firm enough to shape into a ball. Place cheese ball on a platter. Arrange basil leaves and reserved tomato strips around cheese ball like a sunburst. To serve, spread on your favorite crackers.
Makes 2-1/2 cups.
Recipe from Melissa’s brand Sun-dried Tomatoes.
This recipe was called “Dried Tomato Dip” but I sure didn’t see it as a dip so I renamed it. I guess it could be a spread, but sure can’t see “dipping” anything into this as it would be too stiff.
