Lately I have been taking an appetizer to several different meetings. In the effort to make things easy on myself I just keep taking the same herbal cheese spread over and over. I don’t have to think about it, just make it and take it.
This spread is also great on toast and has been breakfast for me a few times over the past few weeks too.
Herbal Cheese Spread
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 1/2 – 3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
- 4T or more sour cream
- 1 T dried basil
- 1 T dried dill weed
- Chopped walnuts (optional)
Let cream cheese and blue cheese stand at room temperature until soft
Blend two cheese until smooth.
Adjust the amount of sour cream to reach the consistency that you want.
Add basil and dill weed
Mix thoroughly and put into your serving bowl
Top with walnuts (optional)
Chill until serving
Makes 1 1/4 cups of cheese mixture
In place of the cream cheese you can use the farmer’s cheese that Jen posted about here at NDIN a few years ago or you can use a yogurt cheese. I didn’t find a post here on NDIN about making yogurt cheese so I will post about that in the next few weeks. Using the farmer’s cheese or the yogurt cheese changes the consistency of this herbal cheese spread, but it still works.
You can use what ever blend of herbs you like. Play with it. Have fun with it.
Do you have a favorite appetizer that you tend to make a lot?
