Gouda and Sun Dried Tomato Cheese Spread

Technically, this is a cheese ball or a cheese log, but I read a very in depth article about how cheese 'balls' and 'logs' (heh) are not in style and they turn people off. So, I went with 'spread' instead.Who cares, really, it tastes delicious and that is all that matters.


Gouda and Sun Dried Tomato Cheese Spread
Makes about 3 cups



  • 1 (8-ounce) package soft cream cheese
  • 2 cups shredded gouda cheese or Colby (8 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
  • 1/4 cup sliced oil-packed sun dried tomatoes, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans)
  • Assorted cracker, if desired


1. Mix cream cheese and Gouda cheese in medium bowl until blended. Stir in chives, tomatoes and garlic powder.

2. Shape mixture into 1 large or 2 small balls or logs; roll in walnuts. Wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours but no longer than 2 weeks. Serve with crackers.
