Recipe: Marinated Cheese

My friend Shelly had been teasing me all summer with her recipe for marinated cheese. She was going to bring it to my Favorite Things Party this summer but opted instead for fondue – which I love by the way – so she promised to bring it for the Christmas Favorite Things Party. Oh.My.Goodness. So worth waiting for!  Dang I have the best girlfriends!  

2 blocks (8oz each) white cheddar cheese

2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
¾ cup chopped roasted sweet red peppers
½ cup olive oil
¼ cup white wine vinegar
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
3 tbsps chopped green onions
3 tbsps minced fresh parsley
2 tbsps minced fresh basil
1 tbsp sugar
3 garlic cloves, minced
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
Toasted bread or crackers
Slice each block of cheddar cheese into twenty 1/4” slices. Cut each block of cream cheese into 18 slices; sandwich between cheddar cheese, using a knife to spread evenly.  Create four 6” long blocks of cheese, place in a 13×9” dish.
Combine the roasted red peppers, oil, vinegars, onions, herbs, sugar, garlic, salt and pepper; pour over cheese.  Cover and refrigerate overnight, turning once.  Drain excess marinade.  Serve cheese with bread or crackers.

When she got to my house we took a spatula and gently lifted sections of the cheese slices to plate on a pretty platter.  We then spooned all the yummy toppings that slid off on top. This was really really really good and I think I might be stopping at the store on my way home now…
