LOVE this appetizer - savory and sweet!

I have had this recipe for over 20 years.  A dear neighbor in Katy, Texas ... Kendra shared this with me... along with the recipe.  She called it Cheese Souffle.  It reminds me of a yummy, flavorful cheeseball with sharp cheddar, green onions, pecans, mayonnaise... and topped with delightful raspberry preserves.  I know it sounds like a weird combination but I promise, you will love it.  I brought it to school last week and told the teachers... "I know it looks a little weird ... but you have to try it!"  They loved it too.  We enjoyed it for two days at lunch!


I snapped this picture as I was spreading on the raspberry preserves - so you could get the idea!


I served it with Wheat Thins - but any favorite cracker will do!

Mix together and form a ball.  Flatten into a serving dish.  Top with raspberry preserves.  Refrigerate. Serve with favorite crackers
