Raspberry Cheese Appetizer

I love appetizers! To me, they are a small, flavor-packed bite of yumminess, and this appetizer doesn’t disappoint. It combines savory and sweet on top of a crunchy cracker, creating a delicious combination.  Not to mention it looks beautiful, too!


  • Preparation Time: 00:20
  • Cuisine: American


  • 8-10-ounce block of aged white cheddar cheese
  • 2-3 tablespoons pf sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 1-3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • Two 6-ounce packages of fresh raspberries
  • Raspberry preserves
  • Crackers


  • 1Shred entire block of cheese into a mixing bowl.
  • 2Add onion. (I usually use 3+ tablespoons, but start with less and add to taste.)
  • 3Add mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon at a time, until you achieve a consistency that can be formed into a ball. Form a round cheese wheel. Place cheese wheel in plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • 4Prior to serving, place cheese wheel on a serving tray and cover in a layer of raspberry preserves, then cover the entire cheese wheel with fresh raspberries (using the preserves as the "glue" to stick them in place).
