Canadian Sharp Cheddar Cheese Spread
Attention, cheese lovers! This may be the best cheese spread you've ever had! My friend's mother gave me this recipe over 15 years ago. I always make it around the holidays, or for football and hockey game nights. Everyone begs for this recipe. Turn this into a pub spread by adding a half cup of your favorite dark ale. Use brick cream cheese for a spread, or spreadable cream cheese for a dip. Serve with crispy crackers, toast, or bagels.
In Canada, I use MacLaren's Imperial Sharp Cold Pack Cheddar Cheese. It is a very hard dry cheese, not a spread. In the US, it would be something like Black Creek(R) Sharp Cheddar Cold Pack Cheese (do not substitute with Cheez Whiz(R)).
Green onions can be substituted for red onions for a milder taste.
This can be formed into a cheese log or cheese ball for a nice presentation.
Once prepared, cheese spread can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
