Here's a new twist on cheeseballs! It's no sweat. Just roll a third of a wheel of good quality blue cheese in chopped toasted hazelnuts and fresh herbs. "It's better than a cheeseball because it's not 'cheese food.' It's real cheese," Rachael says. Serve this treat with slices of green apple.
For a fancy communal appetizer, Rachael recommends her Classic Swiss Fondue , also known as "fun-due." It takes about five minutes to prepare and sets a festive party mood. Guests dip all kinds of veggies in the melted cheese mixture, including carrots, broccoli and Brussels sprouts. "What a healthy party!" Oprah says.
The next appetizer recipe comes courtesy of Rachael's mom, Elsa. The rich Chicken Liver Spread with the Works served on toast will make any guest happy.
