Spice-Crusted Cheese Truffles

Spice-Crusted Cheese Truffles

Makes 18 (1-inch) truffles

 

Cheese goes well with herbs and spices. Here are several variations of a basic cheese truffle, bite-size treats your guests will love.

 
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons finely minced white or yellow onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 teaspoons ground mild chile pepper

Cream together the cheddar cheese, cream cheese, onion, Worcestershire, and pepper in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Roll the cheese into 1-inch-round balls. Roll each truffle in the chile pepper. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to use.

 

Variations: Substitute the following cheeses (for the cheddar) and spice (for the chile pepper) to create tasty Spice-Crusted Cheese Truffle variations:

  • 1/2 cup shredded Havarti cheese and 5 teaspoons dill weed
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese and 5 teaspoons oregano
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese and 5 teaspoons dried orange zest
