Merry Christmas last minute cheese spread!

DSC06254In case ANYONE is checking their emails today, Merry Christmas from my place to yours!

Here is a last-minute recipe for amazingly delicious cheese spread made from left over bits in just a couple of minutes. Enjoy!

LAST MINUTE CHEESE SPREAD

Soften all cheeses to room temperature or microwave until soft. Blend all ingredients together in a food processor until smooth. Fill into a container then decorate and chill. OR chill then shape into a ball and roll in decorations.

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 8 oz of assorted left over strong-tasting cheeses, grated or crumbled. Blue, cheddar cheese, feta, parmesan, etc
  • 2-3 T. liquid to smooth and add flavor; cream, 1/2 & 1/2, cream sherry, port, wine juice, broth….anything. Will help create a deeper flavor profile.
  • 1 tsp granulated onion or garlic
  • 1/2 tsp additional spice if desired; oregano, thyme, sage, etc
  • 2 dashes worcheshire sauce or 2 squirts mustard

Toppings can include dried fruit, nuts, seeds, crumbled bacon, etc.  Be creative and use up your left-overs!  Spread on crackers or toast.  Makes GREAT grilled cheese sandwiches!
