It’s cheese ball season once again here at C+C, and this year we want to open up the cheesy festivities to all our readers. So Colleen and I are excited to announce the first Cheese and Champagne Cheese Ball Invitational! Throughout the month of December, we’ll post cheese ball recipes, stories and photos that you submit. All cheese lovers, regardless if you have a blog, are welcome to join us! Contact us at mncheese [at] gmail [dot] com or dccheese [at] gmail [dot] com with your submissions, and we’ll happily share them with the C+C community.
For inspiration, check out the Chow.com post from Monday about the creation of the turducken of cheese balls, a truly amazing cheese spheroid if there ever was one. That reminds us: if your cheese ball is not an original recipe — and it doesn’t have to be — please be sure to credit the source in your submission. We don’t like it when others steal our ideas (or posts or photos), so in the spirit of the season, let’s make sure we give the same respect to our fellow cheese culinarians.
Bloggers, if you post your cheese balls on your own site, please share your creations using the widget below. (And please be sure to include a link back to the 2011 Cheese Ball Invitational.)
We’re excited to see your favorite cheese ball recipes, and we’ll also be offering our favorite cheesy holiday treats over the course of the month. Come back often for cocktail and cheese pairings, holiday cheese plates, cheesy apps and sides, and cheese-centric gift ideas. Of course, there will be plenty of bubbly as well. Cheers to cheese!
