This cheese spread recipe first came to me as a gift. Not the recipe – the cheese spread. It was Christmastime and I was working as a high school guidance counselor.

One of the parents gave me a batch of this delicious spread in a pretty container as a holiday gift. She told me that she had to make huge quantities in her household as the family would devour it so quickly. With a laugh, she said that they’d just walk by the refrigerator with spoon in hand and dig in. Forget the crackers!
Well, soon as I tried it I was on the phone asking her for the recipe. It is amazingly simple to make and its popularity is proven. I would triple this recipe if I were you!
Cheese Spread Recipe
8 oz. colby jack cheese – shredded
8 oz cheddar cheese – shredded
1 dash Red Hot Sauce
1/2 T. onion powder*
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. prepared mustard
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 1/3 cups real mayonnaise
Tip: you can substitute dry onion flakes for onion powder, if you prefer.
Combine all ingredients except for the cheese first.
Mix well with a spoon.
Add cheese and mix thoroughly.
Scoop into a covered container and refrigerate.
Tip: the flavor enhances over time. If you can keep everyone away for 12 hours or more, it will taste even better but good luck with that! LOL
Note: for those who are on a low-carb diet, this is perfect for you! Less than 1 carbohydrate per serving. How much is a serving? Your guess is good as mine. LOL Just watch the carbs in whatever you choose to put it on!
