Cheddar-Ale Pub Spread Recipe
8 oz old cheddar cheese, grated
8 oz cream cheese, softened
125 ml ale or beer
1 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 cup finely chopped toasted pecans
1/2 cup chopped parsley (fresh)
Place cheeses in food processor or blender, process until smooth. (I
used a combination of by hand and an electric mixer) Gradually add
ale, mustard and cayenne pepper. If mixture is soft, refrigerate
until firm enough to hold shape. Mould into a disc shape ( a sphere
or ball!!). Combine pecans and parsley. Pat the mixture onto the
ball or roll the ball in the mixture until the cheese mixture is
covered completely. Place on a serving plate or board and surround
with crackers or flatbreads. Slices of apple are nice with this too.
This is an easy thing to make and is very tasty.
