Triple-Cheese Torta
Ingredients
  • 2 8  ounce package  cream cheese, softened
  • 4  ounces  Gruyere or Swiss cheese, finely shredded (1 cup)
  • 2  ounces  blue or feta cheese, crumbled (1/2 cup)
  •  Skillet Roasted Tomato Topper or Apple-JalapenoTopper (see below)

4. For Apple-Jalapeno Topper, spread cheese mixture in loaf pan or bowl; cover and chill 2 to 24 hours.

5. To serve, unmold cheese onto a serving platter, removing plastic wrap. Top with remaining topper. (If making Apple-Onion Topper, sprinkle with 1/4 cup pistachio nuts, if desired.) Serve cheese appetizers with crackers, flatbreads, fresh vegetables, or fruits. Makes 24 (2-tablespoon) servings.
