I don’t think it’s possible to show up with a cheese ball at a party and it not be star of the party! You don’t even have to tell how easy it was to make. Shhhhh. This version also has a kick of healthy nutrition with some wheat germ added to the crust.
Truffle Cheese Ball with Wheat Germ
340g cream cheese
1 ½ cups shredded truffle cheese
2 tsp white truffle oil
¼ tsp salt
½ cup nuts, toasted (pecans/walnuts)
1 tbs wheat germ
2 tsp rosemary, finely chopped
1 tsp garlic salt
Dash of cayenne
Sliced almond slivers (optional)
In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese, shredded truffle cheese and white truffle oil with a hand blended until smooth and combined. Shape into a ball and refrigerate for an hour.
To make the coating, combine toasted nuts, rosemary, garlic salt, cayenne and wheat germ in a spice grinder, or small food processor, and pulse until just combined.
Roll the ball in the coating. Decorate with sliced almonds.
Serve with your favourite crackers or veggies.
