This Cranberry Walnut Holiday Cheese Log recipe has tons of flavor, texture, and it looks gorgeous. The green and red make it perfect for your Christmas parties, and it’s so easy to make!
Be sure to use a good quality white cheddar. It will add a ton of flavor. And toasting your nuts first releases their oils, intensifies the flavor, and makes them extra smoky and crunchy.
If you make this in advance, I suggest setting it out about 30 minutes before you serve it, which allows the cheese to soften and makes it easier for your guests to spread.
Some variations to this would be adding crumbled bacon, pine nuts, or any kind of fresh herb you like.
This is also delicious on turkey sandwiches, spread on tortillas for pinwheels, or as a dip along with pita chips and apples.
