Robust Cheddar, Feta and Walnut Cheese Log

Recipe by mama smurf

Found this recipe in Church Suppers (Brand Names) at the checkout counter. I am posting this here so I can find it and make it for the next BSU football game and later on for holidays. I am guessing at the prep/cooking time...depends on how long you leave it in the fridge to set.

Top Review by French Tart

I made this for my birthday party buffet on the 5th May, hence my review being late - sorry about that! It was a fabulous recipe and we all enjoyed it served with crackers and melba toast. The recipe has all of my favourite ingredients in it and I have saved this recipe to make again for parties and at Christmas etc! Thanks for sharing this recipe - made for Aussie Recipe Swap. PS: Review is also late as I was away on holiday in the UK over my birthday, and had no internet for a to be uploaded later!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine cheddar cheese, cream cheese, feta cheese, garlic, salt and pepper sauce; mix until blended and smooth. Add 1/2 cup walnuts, capers, bell pepper and gin, if desired. Continue to mix until ingredients are incorporated and evenly blended. Mixture will be easier to shape if refrigerated 2-3 hours before forming.
  2. Add cayenne pepper to remaining 1/2 cup walnuts and toss to coat. Spread nuts on sheet of waxed paper.
  3. With damp hands, divide cheese mixture in half. Pat and press each half into log about 5 inches long and 2 inches wide or into ball about 3 inches across. (Shape does not need to be perfect.).
  4. Roll eah log or ball in walnuts, patting coating in firmly. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill until ready to serve.
