  • Mix cream cheese and mayo until well blended. Add mozzarella cheese, parsley, garlic and chili powder; mix well. Cover. Refrigerate 2 hours.
  • Combine paprika and poppy seed in shallow dish or pie plate; set aside. Divide cheese mixture in half; roll each half into 6-inch (15-cm) log. Add, one at a time, to paprika mixture; roll gently until logs are evenly coated on all sides.
  • Wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate several hours or until firm. Store leftover cheese logs in refrigerator.


Instead of rolling in paprika and poppy seed, try rolling in finely chopped toasted pecans.

    I have made this for the last two years for our Legion Branch's post-Remembrance Day gathering. To be gentle to older tummies (of which mine is not!! ;) ), I omitted the chili powder and instead used dill weed. Due to laziness last year I didn't bother with shaping, but rather spooned it into a pretty serving bowl and sprinkled with a bit of paprika for presentation. It's always a hit and there are never leftovers to bring home. Kraft is ALWAYS coming through with their recipes, especially for cooks with limited ingredient resources, and this recipe is no exception!
