Honey-Scallion Cheese Log

My Mother-in-Law, Doris,  has been making this Honey-Scallion Cheese Log to bring to parties for years

It was almost expected that she would show up with this delicious (and oh-so-highly-requested) appetizer

It’s one of those recipes that you try and can’t imagine how 4 ingredients can taste this good!

We thought it fitting that she should make this Honey-Scallion Cheese log to share with you all!

The most important ingredient is the wheat germ

Not just ANY wheat germ, it has to be Honey Crunch.  Believe me, Doris wouldn’t have made this if I didn’t buy the correct wheat germ

And she’s right, of course, it adds a delicious sweetness and crunch to the cheese log

Measure out about a cup of honey crunch wheat germ, 1/2 cup of honey, 4 scallions and 2 packages of cream cheese

Let the cream cheese sit out for an hour or so until it reaches room temperature.  Cut the green part of each scallion into thin slices

In a large mixing bowl, add in the 1/2 cup of honey and the scallions

Mix until all of the ingredients are incorporated and form into a ball.  Chill for about 30 minutes to make it easier to form into a log

Now prep a sheet pan by lining with plastic wrap and add about 1/2 of the wheat germ

(did I mention it should be Honey Crunch?)

Plop your chilled cheese mixture onto the pan and roughly form into the shape of a log

It doesn’t matter if it’s misshapen at this point, you’ll fix it up in a minute

Top with more of the wheat germ and pull the plastic wrap up and over the log

Make sure the log is completely covered (every inch of it!) with the wheat germ, and now you can shape into a perfect log shape

Doris likes it to flatten it out a little so there’s more surface area

Nice!  Now wrap up in the plastic and chill for about an hour so the flavors meld and the log firms up a bit
