Schermer's Tomato Pecan Cheese Log

Schermer's Tomato Pecan Cheese Log

1 cup of drained canned whole tomatoes
1 (8oz) pkg. of cream cheese, softened
8 oz Cheddar cheese, grated (2 cups)
1/2 cup of butter, softened
1/2 cup of chopped onion
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon of salt
8 oz chopped Schermer pecans
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
fresh chopped tomatoes for garnish

* some additional mix-ins to consider: chiffonade of basil, chopped chives, substitute spring onion for regular onion

In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, cheeses, butter, onion, garlic, salt and cayenne.  Beat with an electric mixer until smooth.  Spoon onto a larger piece of wax paper.  Roll with wax paper to form a log shape.  Place in freezer 1 hour or until firm.  Remove wax paper and smooth log shape.  Cover with chopped pecans and garnish with bits of fresh tomato. Note: you can roast the pecans for an even nuttier flavor.  Serve with crackers.
