Recipe Spotlight

Savory BLT Cheesecake

Joni Hilton
Did you know that cheesecake could be savory instead of sweet? Tomato and green onions mixed with cream cheese is like an irresistible form of gazpacho. Served on lettuce, the BLT version is great on its own, but it's also a tasty appetizer when served with crackers. This is a flexible recipe, so use other cheese in place of the Gruyere, and add olives, crab meat, cooked mushrooms - whatever strikes your fancy. —Joni Hilton, Rocklin, California
