Even folks who normally don't care for braunschweiger can't seem to resist this creamy spread. Topped with red and green peppers, it's a natural for holiday entertaining. Sometimes I like to form a wreath of fresh parsley around it. —Pat Gulley, Harrisburg, Illinois
2 tablespoons finely chopped sweet red pepper and/or green pepper
In a large bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients; beat until blended. Place on a large sheet of plastic wrap; using plastic wrap, shape mixture into a large ball. Transfer to a serving plate; refrigerate.
For topping, in a small bowl, beat the cream cheese and mayonnaise until smooth. Remove plastic from braunschweiger ball; spread with topping. Sprinkle with chopped pepper. Serve with crackers.
