Save Recipe

Ingredients

2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, room temperature

1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese (preferably orange), shredded, plus additional for rolling

2 tablespoons minced shallot

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/8 teaspoon hot sauce (such as Tabasco)

Coarse salt and white pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Put all ingredients into the bowl of a mixer, and blend thoroughly. Form into an egg-like chick shape, and refrigerate until firm, about an hour. Before serving, roll the cheese ball in shredded cheese (this will look like feathers). Use a whole almond for the chick's beak, raisins for eyes and slivers of carrot or orange peppers for the feet. Serve with crackers or crudites. 
  2. The results are at once delightful and delicious; don't expect the little guy to last very long.
