Cream Cheese Log With Sesame and Soy

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by jenne

This is a tasty and SIMPLE appetizer, a recipe from my friend Rocio (who got it from one of her friends). Asian flare and a crowd pleaser and takes 5 minutes to make it! You'll need some large wheat thins to go along with this. P.S. Feel free to whisk in 1/2 tsp of fresh grated ginger into the soy sauce before pouring it over the cheese log!

Perhaps I would have enjoyed this more with the ginger; I will have to try it that way, next time. The flavors are unique; I've never tasted anything like it before. I did use Big Wheat Thins, but may try it on rice crackers, too. And I may even try it with teriyaki, instead of soy, for a lighter flavor. I really enjoyed the crunch of the sunflower seeds. Thanks for sharing, JanuaryBride! Made for ZWT.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Take brick of cream cheese and place on wax paper. Form it into a log about 6 inches long or so (using the wax paper so your hands don't get yucky.
  2. On a plate, put mix the seeds and pepper. Place the cream cheese on the plate and roll in the seeds/pepper. You may have to pick up the seeds/pepper and place on the roll to get it totally covered. (You may need more seed/pepper mixture depending on how long you make your roll).
  3. Place the roll on a pretty, small platter. Pour soy sauce over top. You'll need a small knife for serving and it tastes best on large wheat thins.
