Homemade Cheese Spreads


Make your own cheese spreads for parties, family get-togethers or backyard barbecues. In no time at all, create your own cheese spread-recipe by adding almost any ingredients you like. Serve fruity spreads in the summer and spicy cheese dips in the winter or mix it up for fun. Offer a variety of delectable spreads at your next party to see which one is loved the most.

Making Cheese Spreads

  • Make a cheese spread by combining different cheeses and mixing them together in a food processor. For best results, mix a hard cheese and a soft cheese. Consider mixing cheddar and cream cheese or Parmesan and goat cheese.

    Instead of using a soft cheese, consider mixing a dressing or sauce with a hard cheese. Mix mayonnaise with cheddar, ranch dressing with blue cheese or sour cream with Swiss for added creaminess.

Extra Ingredients Add More Flavors

  • Herbs and spices, both dry and fresh, are easily added to cheese spreads. However, vegetables such as spinach, onion, garlic and peppers add extra flavor and texture. Add in-season fruit like strawberries, mango or cherries to sweet cheeses such as cream cheese.

    Mix-and-match ingredients to create your own cheese spread recipes such as barbecue sauce, chicken, cheddar cheese and ranch salad dressing, or beer, Worcestershire sauce, tomatoes and cheddar.

Serving Cheese Spreads

  • Serve thick cheese spreads with crackers or toasted bread. These items are sturdy and can withstand the weight of a heavy load of cheese. Consider serving herb-flavored crackers with cheese spreads that contain herbs or vegetables, while you might rather offer toasted garlic bread with a barbecue chicken cheese spread.

    Serve tortilla chips or fresh, cut-up vegetables like celery, carrots or cucumbers with thinner, more creamy cheese spreads. Fill a large bowl with tortilla chips and place a smaller bowl of cheese spread in the center for easy dipping.
