Turkey Cheeseball Appetizer

Turkey Cheeseball (2)

This appetizer is not only adorable, but delicious, too!

Ingredients:

  • 5 multigrain crackers
  • 8 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 8 ounces vegan cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tablespoon Earth Balance butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  •  1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Crackers (for serving)
  • Pretzel sticks (for serving)
  • Red bell pepper strips (for serving)
  • Raisins (for serving)
  1. Place the crackers in a zip-top plastic bag and seal, then crush with a rolling pin. Mince the thyme and rosemary, and add to the cracker crumbs.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the cream cheese, butter, salt, garlic powder, and 1 tablespoon crumb mixture; beat until blended. Spoon the mixture onto plastic wrap, wrap up, and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  3. To serve, spoon the cream cheese mixture into a bowl and shape into a ball with a smaller ball on top as the turkey’s head. Use additional crackers and pretzels as tail feathers, two raisins for eyes, and two bell pepper pieces for the wattle.
  4. Serve with more crackers, pretzels, bell pepper sticks, and raisins. Gobble gobble!
