Smoky Sun-Dried Tomato Cheese Spread

(about 1 1/2 cups)

If you have a food processor handy, then this flavorful cheese spread can be prepared in just minutes.

Happy Holidays!

8 oz Neufchâtel or cream cheese
2 tbsp sour cream
2 oz smoked Gouda
1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes (packed in olive oil), drained
1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
1/4 tsp lemon pepper
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
2 pinches cayenne
salt, to taste
2 green onion, sliced (reserve some for garnish)

Place everything except for the salt and green onion into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is smooth.

Remove the top and scrape down the sides. Taste and add salt as needed; adjust the seasoning if necessary. Sprinkle the sliced green onion evenly over the top. Replace the top and pulse just until the onion is combined.

Garnish with the reserved green onion and serve with crackers, bread or vegetable sticks.

I bet you could bake this too and serve it hot. Happy New Year. GREG

Greg, I never thought to serve it hot. Will heat some of it up and give it a try. Thanks for the tip!
