Stuffed Edam Cheese

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Leslie in Texas

I clipped this recipe from a magazine almost thirty years ago and have made it many times for Christmas parties and gatherings. It's a spreadable step away from the ordinary cheese platter. Serve with your favorite crackers, melba rounds, or pretzel dippers. I also like it because it can be prepared in advance of when you will be serving it.

I found this recipe 50 years Larousse Gastonomique...a mid-1950's edition I got as a gift from a friend. Didn't include the caraway seeds but I will try that on a small cheese at home. It was magnifique..looking forward to making it again for a New Year's Eve party.
