Smoky Cheese Spread


"My cousin shared this yummy spread recipe with me. This tastes like the 'expensive stuff' in the gourmet deli section! Better if made a day or two ahead. Serve with small firm crackers."

I thought this recipe was just ok. I didn't really taste the smoky flavor. The Cream Cheese and Ham Spread recipe had a stronger flavor. I may try combining these two recipes.

Quick, easy and very tasty. I recommend it!

I made this recipe as a first time "cheese baller" for a Christmas luncheon at work. I added 4-5 slices (chopped)of my favorite ham to the mix and it was a hit.

I agree with the others. You've gotta add more liquid smoke. I also mixed in bacon bits.

I added cooked bacon and used mesquite smoky flavor liquid smoke. I served it on french bread. It was a BIG hit!!!!!
