This recipe was always a staple at Christmas or New Year’s. Unfortunately, the McLaren’s Imperial Cheese is found in Canada, but not in the US or Mexico. You can substitute it with another type of processed cheddar spread, like Alouette in Mexico. You can also use a blue cheese spread if you do not have real blue cheese available.
Jill’s Cheese Ball
8 ounces softened Philadelphia cream cheese
8 ounces McLaren’s Imperial Cheese (or another brand)
4 ounces blue cheese
2 Tablespoons grated onions and juice
Mix all ingredients together and whip with an electric mixer. Roll into a ball or a log and wrap in waxed paper. Chill for 2 to 4 hours in refrigerator. When chilled, roll in chopped pecans. Refrigerate until ready to be served. Allow to warm up briefly.
Serve with your favourite crackers.
