Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Place cheeses in food processor or blender; process until well blended. Gradually mix in ale, mustard and pepper. (If mixture is too soft, refrigerate until firm enough to hold shape.)
  • Shape into flattened ball or disk shape. Combine pecans and parsley in shallow dish or plate. Roll cheese in nut mixture, turning to coat and patting mixture on to coat completely.
  • Place on serving plate or cheese board to serve.

Make Ahead

Cheese mixture keeps well for several weeks. Mix and shape cheese mixture but do not roll in nut mixture. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate. When ready to serve, let stand at room temperature 15 to 20 min. to soften slightly. Roll in nut mixture as directed.

    Absolutely delicious, I served it on toasted baquette slices. Served it to my guests on the patio while waiting to serve them dinner.
