Three-Cheese Spread

Cheese and crackers are a food staple in my book. Years ago, we had a Sunday brunch at my house. After eating Brunch, I was good to go until dinner. However, my kids seem to think they have to eat at least 3 times a day not matter what! So, I decided to make this three-cheese spread to help tide everyone over until our 5 o’clock dinner.

Recently, I made this spread again for a bridal shower that I was helping out with. I made this spread along with the green onion cheese ball that I shared with you yesterday. Then I also had a nice big array of crackers. This spread would also be a great addition to include as a soft cheese on a charcuterie board.

This recipe came from Amber’s Delectable Delights. It was tasty. I loved it best on the triscuit crackers. My only complaint was that the spread was quite thick. So, I just add a little extra milk to help thin it out just a bit.

I served mine immediately. You probably could made these into a couple of cheese balls too if you wanted to. Just use less milk and divide the mixture into two. Then roll in the deired nuts and shape into a ball.

We put the leftovers in the fridge for the next day and the cheese does get quite firm after being in the fridge. If you put it in your refrigerator, make sure you give it a little time to sit out before you serve it. This made a great snack and would also work great as an appetizer.

I haven’t tried this yet, but do plan on it. I believe, as thick as you say it is, that this would make an excellent cheese ball. Just make as is and roll in your choice of coating (bacon bits, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, crushed nuts, etc…
I personally have my own cheese dip that I sell a lot of at our local Farmer’s market, which actually is a cheese spread. Unfortunately, since it is a great seller, I have decided to make the recipe a family secret. Not even my kids know how I make it. People know what is in the spread, just not how much.
