Do you like my cheese ball turkey? I'm so proud of him! This is what I made for my family's Thanksgiving celebration. I was trying to recreate this guy but my little bird turned out a bit different.
It was very simple to make. I took two pre-made cheese balls and formed them into one large one. The tricky part was the head. I sliced up a red pepper into two parts - one for the head and neck, the other for the wattle. I stuck them into the ball and placed whole pecans around the body. Then I took five feather-shaped crackers and decorated them with cheese for the back feathers. (I used a plastic sandwich bag filled with cheese whiz with the tip cut off). Finally, I used leftover cheese whiz to form two little eyes and a beak. Black peppercorns were used for the pupils. He's sitting in a bed of dried cranberries.
I hope you all had a happy holiday!
