Marinated Cheese Appetizer Recipe
12 to 16 servings
Prep time: 20 min
Marinade (see recipe below)
1 (8-ounce) block sharp cheddar cheese, chilled
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, chilled
Fresh Parsley sprigs for garnish
Prepare Marinade; set aside.
Cut the block of cheddar cheese in
half lengthwise. Then, cut crosswide into 1/4-inch slices; set aside. Repeat the
same procedure with the cream cheese.
Arrange the cheddar cheese and
cream cheese slices alternately in a shallow baking dish, standing the slices on their sides. Pour
the prepared Marinade over the cheese slices, cover and marinate in refrigerator at least 8 hours.
After refrigerating, transfer
cheese slices to a serving platter in the same alternating fashion, reserving
marinade. Spoon marinade over the cheese slices. Garnish with parsley and serve with assorted crackers.
