LOOKING for: Savory Cheesecake

BeverlyALSeptember 13, 2007

Remember the popular savory cheesecake everyone was raving about on the CF a couple of years ago? Seems like it had jalapenos in it. Could someone please post the recipe?

I am pretty sure that Katie had a recipe for a Jalapeño Cheesecake that was very popular. I don't have it because I don't do "hot" very often but I do recall it getting rave reviews.

As Ginger mentions, go ask over at the CF , I'm sure someone can help you out.

Here's Katie's recipe and here's another just for good measure!

I'm making these for our Christmas party at work:

Jalapeno Cheesecake Recipe
Serving Size : 20 Preparation Time :0:00

8 ounces cream cheese
5 ounces sharp cheddar cheese -- grated
2 cloves garlic
1 egg
8 ounces jalapeno jelly

Mix first four ingredients together with half of the jelly. Pour mixture into greased 6- inch springform pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
Cool completely and remove from pan.

Heat remaining jelly and pour over top of cheesecake. Serve with chips and/or crackers.

PESTO CHEESECAKE

CRUST
1 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup grated parmesean cheese
1/2 cup melted butter Mix all together and press into 9" springform pan. Bake 10 minutes.

FILLING
4 (8 oz packages) cream cheese
4 eggs
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 cups pesto (from the refrigerator section of your grocer)

Beat with electric mixer. Pour into prepared pan. Bake at 350* for 1 hour. Chill several hours or overnight. Remove from pan and decorate with a little chopped tomato or chopped sundried tomatoes. Slice into very thin slices and serve on small individual plates - or - cut into thirds and place 1/3 on serving plate and use to spread on crackers or baguettes. Be sure to decorate with a little chopped "red" tomato accent and maybe some green basil too. Looks beautiful! (If you cut into thirds, you can serve 1/3 and freeze the remaining for another time.)

Thanks Woodie, I don't know if that's it or not. Definitely going to save that one.

Ginger and Chase, I thought about asking there. Since this is the one where you are supposed to ask for recipes I thought I would ask here to do it properly.

Jessy, I have frozen the pesto cheesecake many times. It is so big, I cut it into thirds and freeze two of them. it thaws beautifully. It has excellent freezability and thawability. :-)
