Dead Man's Cheese Ball

LUSCIOUSLEMONADE

"Serve this black cheese ball with blue corn chips or dark rye toast for a ghastly presentation. It's punchy, just like you'd expect cheese of the dead to taste. You can find black sesame seeds at a reasonable price at most Asian markets."

Directions

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In the container of a food processor, combine the Cheddar cheese, sour cream, butter, horseradish, hot mustard, chipotle sauce, garlic and port wine. Pulse until smooth. You can use a potato masher in a large bowl but it will take longer.
  2. Line a bowl with plastic wrap, and fill with the cheese mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  3. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat just until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Gather the plastic wrap around the cheese mixture and form into a ball. Remove the plastic wrap and roll the ball in sesame seeds to coat. Place in the center of a platter and surround with your favorite chips or crackers.

Great recipe for a cheese ball. Be creative I sculpted mine into a rat and used the left over port to create a simple raspberry port sauce.. I uploaded the pic! It was a hit!

It was runny and could not be shaped into a ball at all. I guess I should have used cream cheese.

This is a yummy appitizer in an awesome presentation. A few additions I made were (1) dropping a few drops of green food coloring into the food processed. (2) Throwing a few plastic bugs/snake...

Great taste!! I took toasted sesame seeds and soaked them in a bottle of black food coloring and some port wine. They came out almost greenish black, it was absolutely amazing. I also made th...

This was a big hit at a party. I couldn't get the black sesame seeds to cover the whole ball. But be warned, it makes alot! Next time I will make 3 or 4 smaller balls. Very strong taste, delici...

Five stars for inspiration, even though I'm likely to change a few things if I make it again. First, I would definitely use the sharp cheddar (I used mild), and less horseradish. I left out th...

This was great! I omitted the hot mustard and the chipotle hot sauce and added additional horseradish and an extra garlic clove, but other than that, I stuck to the recipe. I used a Tawny Port...

Was unable to get mine to form into a ball, it was just a gooey mess. So instead I turned it into a dip, covering the bottom of the dish with the sesame seeds and the top. I also substituted h...
