Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I really liked this simple cheese log recipe. It has a lot of flavor from the garlic and onion. The crushed red pepper really gives this zing... not too spicy, but just enough to keep you coming back for more. This is easy to throw together and would be great for a casual gathering like a football game but just as lovely served at a holiday party.


6 oz
shredded Colby-jack cheese
8 oz
cream cheese
1 Tbsp
crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp
onion powder
1/2 tsp
granulated garlic


1Shred Colby-jack cheese.
2Add cream cheese and seasonings to a bowl.
3Mix cream cheese by hand.
4Add Colby-jack cheese and, by hand, mix well.
5Form into a log. Wrap cheese in Saran Wrap and place in refrigerator.
6Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.

*The flavors intensify overnight~~got a little KICK to it!
