A great cheese ball to put on your nibble tray for when guests arrive.
Grate each of the cheeses into a mixing bowl.
Chop the gherkins and onion into very small cubes, add to the bowl.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Mix in the jar of cream cheese a heaped tablespoon at a time.
Use you hands to squeeze the mixture together.
It should be quite moist.
Roll into balls about fist size. You should have enough mixture for 2 or 3 cheese balls.
Roll the balls in a bowl of curry powder to cover the ball in full.
Refrigerate to set, then eat.
Put the extra cheeseballs in a freezer bag and freeze for that raining day. I always have at least 2 or 3 in my freezer at anytime. They defrost within the hour.
Double the receipe and freeze the extras for unexpected guests.
