    Iceland's Note:

    What a twist to an all time favorite! I make cheese balls all the time as you can make them before head when you are awaiting a crowd or have hungry guests dropping in without knowing beforehand. Sometimes neither me and nor DH feel for cooking, then we just sit down, i chop up some apples, carrots and find some crackers or nice bread and we enjoy some really fast dinner which still makes you feel good. The bananas give this cheeseball a slightly sweet taste which is though not over whelming as there are lots of spices too. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. I can recommend to serve it with salted crackers or, if you like it to bee more filling, with dark, freshly baked rye bread. Note: Cooking time does not include chilling time.

      This was a fantastic cheese ball! I never had a banana mixed in with a cheese ball, but here it worked out wonderfully, and it blended in extremely well. I don't think i would change a thing, as none of the ingredients overpowered any of the others. And it was so pretty to see the colour of the thyme mix with the colour of the walnuts, too.
