The perfect appetiser for dinner parties or other social gatherings. Mature cheddar is blended with soured cream and a variety of seasonings, chilled, formed into a ball and then rolled in toasted black sesame seeds. Serve with crackers, crostini or crusty bread.
If your local supermarket doesn't stock black sesame seeds, you can find them in Oriental speciality stores.
Great recipe for a cheese ball. Be creative I sculpted mine into a rat and used the left over port to create a simple raspberry port sauce.. I uploaded the pic! It was a hit! - 02 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wow, this is an excellent recipe for any time of year! I used poppy seeds and served with water crackers and black grapes for our Halloween party. - 27 Jun 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a yummy appitizer in an awesome presentation. A few additions I made were (1) dropping a few drops of green food coloring into the food processed. (2) Throwing a few plastic bugs/snakes that I found in the toy box into the dishwasher and them positioning them around/ on the cheese ball. I even won 1st place at a Halloween party last year! Thanks for your awesome recipe and great idea! - 31 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
