Party Cheese Spread

This addictive Party Cheese Spread is filled with cream cheese, meat, green onions, and cheddar cheese and can easily be adapted into a cheeseball or any shape to match the holiday.  It can be rolled into nuts, parsley, or any topping you prefer.  It can also be made thinned out with extra mayonnaise to make it more of a dip.

As with most of my recipes, you can add and subtract ingredients to fit your tastes and needs.  Sometimes I use boiled or baked deli ham in place of the Buddig beef.  I bet bacon would also be a great substitute or addition, I just have not tried it.

No matter which way you choose to make this, spread, dip, or cheeseball, it will soften more the longer it sits out being served.  The consistency you have will making it, will be the consistency you have when it has been at room temperature for an hour or so.  Plan accordingly when adding mayonnaise when making.

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Sometimes you just want a light and simple dinner, no matter the season. These crab stuffed mushrooms fit the bill paired with a salad.

They also make a lovely appetizer, but they aren’t so fancy and expensive to make that you couldn’t carry them to a tailgate or casual backyard BBQ. They would also be great served as an accompaniment to a nice juicy rib-eye. I have probably done all of the above with them over the years.

I use white cheddar cheese on my mushrooms, but please use whatever cheese is your favorite.  I encourage people to always change a recipe to fit their own tastes.
