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)
  1. Combine everything but the jam and form into a ring on your serving tray.
  2. Spoon the jam into the centre of the ring.
  3. Serve with crackers.
A co-worker of mine makes this dip to bring into work all the time but won't divulge her recipe - so I was forced to scour the internet and came up with this one that's pretty darn close!
