Ingredients

2 cups shredded smoked Gouda cheese, room temperature*
2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons steak sauce
1 cup toasted chopped walnuts or pecans
Crackers, for serving


*To shred a soft cheese like this, cut the block into pieces that fill fit through the tube thingie on your food processor. Stick the chunks in the freezer for 15 minutes, attach the shredding blade to your processor and then shred the cold, firm (but not frozen) cheese.


Then you:


Place Gouda, cream cheese, butter, milk and steak sauce in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix until well combined. Transfer mixture to refrigerator. Let chill overnight. Roll cheese mixture into a ball or several smaller balls. Place nuts in a shallow dish. Roll cheese in nuts to fully coat. Serve with crackers.
