Hallowed Eve Cheese Pumpkin Recipe
Oxmoor House
Don't just settle for a typical appetizer. Mix things up this Halloween and serve this hauntingly-good cheese pumpkin masterpiece to your party guests.

Yield:

Serves 10 to 15

Recipe from

Gooseberry Patch

Ingredients

2 8-oz. pkgs. shredded extra sharp Cheddar cheese
8 ounce pkg. cream cheese, softened
8 ounce container chive and onion cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 stalk broccoli, top removed
Garnish: finely chopped parsley, seeds such as poppy, sesame and fennel
assorted crackers

Preparation

Combine all ingredients except broccoli and crackers. Shape mixture to resemble a pumpkin. Trim broccoli stalk, if needed, and press lightly into the top of the pumpkin for a stem. Use a knife to make vertical lines down the sides of the cheese ball. Press seeds into the side of the pumpkin for texture. Serve with crackers.

Note:

Presenting the food is just as much fun as making it! When making your cheese ball pumpkin, set it on a pedestal plate and tuck fall leaves under the plate for an autumnal look.

A Ghastly-Good Halloween,

Gooseberry Patch
