A Recipe for Claire

This is an old favorite. It's from Nikki and David Goldbeck's American Wholefoods Cuisine....with my own alterations, of course!

Cheese- Nut Roast 

1 tablespoon oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 1/4 cup soft bread or stale cracker crumbs
3/4 cup ground nuts of whatever kind you find in your pantry - almond, peanuts, cashews, sunflower seeds, walnuts, etc.
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon soy sauce

Saute onion in oil for a few minutes until soft.

 Mix the rest of the ingredients  and shape into a loaf in a well-oiled loaf pan or 7" or 8" by 11" pan. Top the loaf with sauteed onions and oil.

Bake the loaf at 375 F  until the top is well-browned and crisp. This is good with ketchup, mustard, barbeque sauce, etc.
