1 cheese ball
What You'll Need
cream cheese, softened
sheet nori (dried seaweed)
togarashi, plus more for garnish
Sea salt and freshly-ground pepper, to taste
Black and white sesame seeds, for garnish
In a stand mixer or in a large bowl with a spatula, whip the cream cheese and butter together until fully incorporated.
Add the soy sauce, mayonnaise, nori, togarashi, and salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly, and turn onto a sheet of plastic wrap.
Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours, or at least until the cream cheese mixture is firm to the touch.
Remove the cheese ball from the refrigerator, and shape into a ball.
On a baking sheet, spread out the sesame seeds and additional togarashi and roll the cheese ball in them so that it is fully covered. Serve with crisp cucumbers and crackers.
