Fireside Cheese Spread Recipe

Publisher Photo
When our family and friends get together for holidays or other occasions, I serve this appetizer. It's always a success. If you prefer, try a Swiss cheese spread instead of the cheddar. And, if you enjoy garlic, substitute a small clove of minced garlic for the garlic powder. —Debbie Terenzini-Wilkerson, Lusby, Maryland

This looks like just the recipe I've been looking for. Thanks :-)!

Easy recipe. At first I was put off by having to waste a whole package of perfectly good cheese spread on a recipe that I did not know would turn out. However, sometimes you need just an easy, different and tasty treat. Texture is fluffy and we liked with Triscuits and pretzels the best. Would be great for a party or we made and enjoyed for our weekend of football. Until you know for sure you like this recipe, I would consider cutting this in half as it makes ALOT of cheese spread. We will do this again.

What would you critics consider cream cheese....a processed spread ? Perhaps!

I agree with MFWills, when I make a cheese spread, I don't want to use a prepared cheese spread.
