This cheese spread recipe from The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen is a must for your next party. Try it out and let us know what you think in the comments.
10 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated (3 cups)
2 ounces (¼ cup) lager or ale
Juice of 1 lemon (3 tablespoons)
2 tablespoons ketchup 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish, drained
2 teaspoons hot sauce, such as Tabasco or Crystal
1½ teaspoons dry mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tbsp red wine**
Combine all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the mixture is smooth and spreadable. Transfer to a small bowl to serve.
** This is the secret ingredient that makes this dip addictive. The red wine is not printed in the ingredients list in their cookbook, but Matt and Ted shared the wine tip with us when demoing the recipe at our store. (The wine was left out of the printed recipe so folks wouldn’t feel obligated to open a bottle of wine just for a tablespoon, but we say, open the bottle and drink what’s left!)
