What a way to “ring” in the new year…

This is absolutely the BEST cheese ring you will eat!
You are supposed to make it in a Jello mold. I don’t have one, so I just greased my Bundt pan really well.
When you serve this cheese ring you are supposed to put strawberry jelly in the middle. Some folks didn’t want the jelly, so we just scooped it out of the jar. Our party wasn’t too fancy–just family.

Cheese Ring
1 pound sharp cheddar cheese (I used mild.)
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup mayonnaise
Dash of cayenne pepper
Dash of black pepper

That’s it!
Mix it all up thoroughly and press into your mold.
Chill for at least 4 hours.
Serve with strawberry jelly and crackers.
