Cheese Ring with Jam
4 cups grated sharp or medium cheddar cheese
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 medium onion, grated
1 garlic clove, minced
a dash of hot sauce
1 cup jam (I like strawberry but I've used raspberry and it's been nice too)
Combine everything but the jam and form into a ring on your serving tray.
Spoon the jam into the centre of the ring.
Serve with crackers.
