Cream Cheese Extravaganza

Feta-Cheeseball21Sometimes simple is best.

This is so easy to make, and provides a perfect base for a variety of toppings. I had it recently with cranberry chutney and it was wonderful. You could also go savory with perhaps something like sun-dried tomatoes and olives, or smoked salmon. The possibilities are endless.

This is another base recipe upon which you can let your creativity bloom.

So get busy.

And enjoy.

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 8 oz package of cream cheese
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 2-3 green onions, chopped fine

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1.  Bring both the cheese and butter to room temperature and then blend together, until well mixed.
  2. Press into a bowl or mold and chill. Easiest to do if you line the bowl or mold with plastic wrap first. You can smooth out the lines after you unmold.
  3. Invert on a plate and press in the onions and scatter around the edges.

SERVES: 12

NOTES: You can of course add other things such as olives, bacon, salami, and an endless list, but then of course you would defeat the entire purpose of using it as a base for a variety of toppings. At a party, using this as is, with the choice of toppings would make it a very versatile appetizer.
