Keep "gouda" cheese logs in your fridge for drop-by guests, impromptu entertaining or simple snacking.
tub (8 ounces) soft cream cheese
cups shredded Gouda or Colby cheese (8 ounces)
cup chopped fresh chives
cup sliced drained sun-dried tomatoes in oil
teaspoon garlic powder
cup finely chopped fresh parsley
Assorted crackers, if desired
Mix cream cheese and Gouda cheese until blended. Stir in chives, tomatoes and garlic powder. Shape mixture into 2 small logs or 1 large ball. Roll in parsley.
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours until firm. Serve with crackers.
Roll the cheese logs in 3/4 cup chopped pecans instead of the parsley, or omit the chives in the cheese mixture and roll in chives instead.
These tasty cheese logs can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
