This recipe was given to me by a dear friend that I met during my first year of marriage.  We actually came together because we showed dogs together.  She and her husband became the best of friends with my husband and I.  Sadly we both of our dear friends have passed, but what wonderful memories I have when preparing some of the recipes she had passed down to me.

A delicious braunschweiger based appetizer perfect to serve for the holidays.
Ingredients
  • 8 Ounces of Braunschweiger
  • 2 Tablespoons Chili Sauce
  • 4 Dashes of Tabasco Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons of Mayonnaise
  • 8 Ounces of Cream Cheese
  • ½ Cup of Finely Minced Onions
  • 1 Medium Jar of Pimento Stuffed Olives
Instructions
  1. Bring the braunschweiger and the cream cheese to room temperature. Divide the cream cheese into 3 ounces and 5 ounces. Set the 5 ounce portion aside. Mix all of the ingredients EXCEPT for the 5 ounces of cream cheese together until mixed throughly. Form the mixture into a ball. Refrigerate the ball for one hour. While the mixture is firming up in the refrigerator, slice olives into thin slices. Put the cream cheese into the microwave for 10 seconds on high. Take the ball out and 'frost' it with the cream cheese. Cover with slices of olive. Cover and seal, place in the refrigerator and take it out when you are ready to serve. Serve with crackers.

  1. Chloe, is this recipe an old family favorite? It’s really pretty. I’m not familiar with braunschweiger, but this has peeked my interest. I love olives and anything that can be scooped on a cracker for holiday parties. Perfect make ahead appetizer. Thanks so much for being a part of the Holiday Recipe Blog Hop. You are my blog hop inspiration.

    1. This was handed down to me by a dear friend that I used to show dogs with! Sadly, she has passed away, but she truly taught me the art of the dinner party, and gave me so many wonderful recipes!

  2. Chloe, you are my hero! Braunschweiger is one of my favorite appetizers from my childhood! I grew up in a very German household, and this was (is?!) a staple at any family gathering. Now I am craving it! Thanks for participating in the blog swap and introducing others to this scrumptious dish!

  3. Your Braunschweiger party ball not only sounds delicious, but looks oh so pretty on the platter. When I was a little girl, I loved Braunschweiger and I haven’t had it in years upon years. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us. I look forward to making it.

  4. Chloe, this looks amazing! My family would flip for this! How wonderful that you have lovely memories of your sweet friends! Thank you for sharing. Happy Fall! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
