The recipe is very versatile. You can substitute the sharp cheddar cheese with medium cheddar, or even pepper-jack. If you have fresh herbs in the garden, I'd recommend adding some. Try using fresh dill, basil, and/or marjoram.
Sharp Cheddar & Cream Cheese Dip - serves 6-8
I recommend serving this dip with a sturdy cracker that can hold-up to the thickness of the cream cheese. We prefer Wheat Thins.
16 ounces cream cheese, softened (Organic Valley is a good choice)
1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp. scallion, finely chopped
dash of garlic powder
dash of black pepper
1 cup walnuts, chopped and lightly roasted
1 box crackers
Mix all ingredients (using your hands if necessary). Form into a ball, and roll in chopped nuts. Press ball into a serving bowl. Serve with crackers and an assortment of crisp vegetables. Enjoy.
