The Famous Strawberry Cheese Ring Recipe


Happy Thursday everyone! Hope you're having a great week, I can't believe it's almost over. I've been "off" every day since Monday was a holiday, good thing I have calendars all over the place around the house. :-)

Many of you will remember that a few weeks ago I posted photos of my 40th birthday party. (original post HERE). The picture of the Strawberry Cheese Ring my sister made created lots of interest, both here on the blog and on Facebook.

I should tell you guys - this is one of the recipes that my Mother, sister and I make for almost every party we host or attend. It was originally introduced to us by the man who catered my wedding, wayyyyy back when. Then he also catered my sister's wedding. Now sure how Mother talked him into the recipe - but she managed to do so. To protect his privacy and "secrets" I won't post his name, but...I will share the recipe.

STRAWBERRY CHEESE RING

(2) Cups grated Cheddar Cheese
(1) Cup Chopped Pecans
(1) Cup Mayonnaise
(1) Small Green Onion, finely chopped
Dash of Cayenne Pepper
Dash of Black Pepper
Strawberry Preserves
3-4 Slices Fried Bacon, crumbled

Mix all ingredients except preserves and mold into ring. (Tip: line ring with plastic wrap for ease of removal). Chill in refrigerator at least 6 hours or overnight.

When ready to serve, fill center of ring with preserves. Serve immediately with crackers.

NOTE: We make this with (and without, depending on the crowd!) the bacon. It can certainly be omitted and the ring is still delicious! The ring in the picture above does NOT have the bacon.

Another tip: Try the recipe with Ritz crackers. Oldie but goodie.

Let me know if you make the ring and what you think! I have friends who absolutely expect to find this at any party hosted around these parts! Enjoy! :-)

Have a wonderful Thursday!
