RECIPE FROM "SANDY'S
Cream Cheese Log with Dried Beef
1 container (8 ounces) reduced-fat, soft style cream cheese at room temperature
1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 teaspoon drained prepared horseradish
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese (2 ounces)
2 ounces dried beef (finely chopped)
1 tablespoon drained canned pimientos (chopped)
1/2 cup finely chopped chives or green onion tops
In a small bowl, with an electric mixer on high, beat the cream cheese, mayonnaise, and horseradish until creamy. Stir in Swiss cheese, dried beef, and pimientos. Shape the mixture into an 8-inch log. Wrap log in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (will keep for 2 days).
Spread the chives on wax paper. Unwrap the log and carefully roll it in the chives, coating it completely. Rewrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until time to serve. Serve the cheese log with melba toast slices.
