Cheese Ball

These are great as a snack at home or a leaving party at work. Quick and simple but very versatile, so change up what you put in it and around the outside!


16oz (2 blocks cream cheese) room temperature

1 tsp dried chilli flakes

1/2 cup grated fresh parmesan

2 tsp garlic, crushed

10g fresh chopped chives

2 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp dried tarragon

2 tbsp light mayonnaise


Black peppert

Toasted pecan nuts 300g, blitzed to breadcrumb consistency (keep spare for next time)


In a large bowl with an electric whisk mix everything together until combined and taste. Season as needed.

Scrape everything into cling wrap and roll into a ball shape. Leave in the fridge for as long as you can. 12 hours for this one.

Roll in the nuts a few times, pressing to coat and serve with crackers or crunchy veggies.
