Giving Thanks with Turkey-Shaped Cheese

November 30, 2012

turkey cheese ball at speckless

So my contribution to Thanksgiving this year was a cheese ball. I knew I wanted to make it special, and my first thought was to make it turkey-shaped. Then I thought it might be better to simplify things . . . a Pilgrim hat? A pumpkin? And then without even looking for cheese balls or turkey-shaped anything, I saw this on Pinterest, and our little friend here was hatched!

I really didn’t want to wrestle with a Slim-Jim, so I made the head out of cheese, too.

PS: I do know this is technically a rooster – turkeys don’t have that head flapper thing – but I thought he needed some extra style in the face region.

PPS: Put some Liquid Smoke in your next cheese ball. You won’t regret it.

      Thanks! Maybe I’ll do a tree-shaped one for Christmas?
