Makes:Four 5 oz logs.
Started looking around for a sophisticated cheese “log” to serve at a party. Found the secret to making any cheese spread spreadable is combining the chosen cheese and neufchatel or cream cheese in equal parts. The bit of mayo here gives it a very smooth texture and the lemon zest a beautiful layer of flavor that will have your guests oohing and ahhing.
10 oz goat cheese
10 oz neufchatel cheese
2 T mayonnaise
Combine goat cheese, neufchatel, and mayo in food processor. Process until smooth, scraping the sides down.
Stir in chopped prosciutto by hand.
Make logs. Divide mixture into 4 equal mounds and place each mound onto foot-long sheets of plastic wrap. Covering the mound of cheese with the plastic, pull the cheese towards you and begin to shape a cylinder. Roll in remainder of plastic sheet and secure the sides with twist ties or twine. Refrigerate for at least a few hours to allow log to set, up to 2 days.
Remove from plastic carefully. Log will be set, but not solid. Roll in chopped parsley and lemon zest and serve with crackers.
