Canadian Sharp Cheddar Cheese Spread

Canadian Sharp Cheddar Cheese Spread Attention, cheese lovers! This may be the best cheese spread you’ve ever had! My friend’s mother gave me this recipe over 15 years ago. I always make it around the holidays, or for football and hockey game nights. Everyone begs for this recipe. Turn this into a pub spread by adding a half cup of your favorite dark ale. Use brick cream cheese for a spread, or spreadable cream cheese for a dip. Serve with crispy crackers, toast, or bagels.
