A friend, Helen Z., served up this cheese ‘ball’ at Christmas and calls it a “Mock Boursin Cheese”. It was delicious! Serve with a mild cracker like a Wheat Thin or a plain Water Cracker.
Mock Boursin Cheese Ball
Combine softened 8 oz. cream cheese with 1 teaspoon of all of the following:
- caraway seed
- dried basil
- dill weed
- chopped chives
- 1 clove garlic, finely minced
Stir all this together well and then shape it into a ball (rounded or flattened) and press it into several tablespoons of lemon-pepper that you have poured onto a plate.
This should be prepared early in the day if serving that evening – or the day before – in order to let the flavors meld.
