David’s Favorite Cheese Dip



Print Friendly

This is a Christmas favorite of my son’s but it can be served New Year’s or any time you want a quick and easy dip. -Jill

 

David’s Favorite Cheese Dip

1 jar Kraft Old English cheese spread
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup nuts, chopped

Mix ingredients. Roll into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap. Most of the time we just mix it and serve in a bowl without wrapping it. Serve with chips.

 

We leave the nuts out because no one around here but mom, my sister in law and I would eat it.

    Hi… Don’t know where else to post this, but since it’s food related, here goes… If you want a really special dessert, without the bakery crazy prices, try this: 1 store bought (or homemade) PLAIN cheescake
    1 can cherry pie filling
    1 box chocolate covered cherries candy(CCC)
    1 plain chocolate bar (cold)

    Take the cheesecake and cover it with the pie filling. Add chocolate covered cherries at the 12, 3, 6, and 9 spots(like a clock face). Now put another CCC in between those ‘hours’…. Take the chocolate bar and using your potato peeler, shave the edges of the bar over the entire cake top….EAT!!!! (or keep chilled)

    I thought of this off the top of my head one time when we had company coming. There wasn’t a crumb left!! I’ve even taken it when visiting and it vanished!
    Looks like you spent hours making it, but the secret is yours!

    here is another easy cheese ball.

    1 pkg cream cheese.
    bacon bits
    1tsp of horse radish
    salt and pepper.

    mix it altogether wrap in a ball until chilled.
    good with crackers or celery sticks.

    I like it hot so I add more horseradish and I add bacon bits until it looks good.
    sorry no real measurements.
    but it is delicious.

    Thanks, Jill-this looks so easy and I can tell it’s awesome just by the ingredients. Those small jars of Kraft cheeses are something I probably wouldn’t buy unless it was a special occasion, party, etc. But, they are wonderful and sooooo worth it.

    Grandma-I want to try yours, too. How are you doing right now? I hope this is a wonderful holiday season for you!

    I made this last night and it is so good. I also bought a bottle of Cranberry Ginger Ale soda that was on sale for 78 cents and enjoyed a little of this cheese with crackers and watched a Christmas movie.

    This is an easy and inexpensive appetizer for almost any occasion. I may jazz it up by adding some chopped herbs to the chilled ball before serving and serving with crackers, celery sticks and grapes.

    Tawra,
    we make the same cheese ball but we add a few dashes of worschire and a sprinkle of garlic powder, and grate very finely a quarter of an onion(it almost turns to juice)
    then roll in nuts, just like yours…refrigerate to allow flavors to blend.
    a family favorite at our homes too.

    This is “almost” like our favorite, but I add crumbled blue cheese to ours. Used to struggle making it into a ball and trying to keep it wrapped. Now just put it in a container with a good tight seal. Even add a little onion powder or dehydrated onions and a little garlic powder. You can spoon it into a fancy dish with a little chopped fresh parsley for a festive spread surrounded by crackers and a cute little spreader. Made it a couple of days ago and it is going down fast. Will make some more to get thru the holidays.

    Made our 6 lbs of Fantasy Fudge and it is going fast too. I have the original recipe that is never fail. Don’t make the recipe on the new container as it doesn’t work. If you want the old recipe, I will send it to you. I ended up with 6 lbs of ice cream topping with the new recipe! It takes over two years of many hot-fudge sundaes to use it all up! No one needs to eat that many sundaes!

    I sure would love to have your recipe for Fantasy Fudge Kathryn as I plan on making some this year. I have not yet found the perfect fudge recipe so am still looking. Thanks.

    just made these crackers for the first time and they are so easy and also so good. They are being added to my nibblers to friends packages.

    Cheese thins.
    2 cups flour
    1 cup grated sharp cheddar
    1 tbsp white sugar
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp Onion powder
    1/16 cayenne pepper
    1/4 cup cooking oil
    1/2 cup water.
    mix first 7 ingredients into bowl. stir well
    add oil and water. Mix until you can form a ball.
    Cover and let stand 20 min.
    divide into 4.
    roll 1 portion paper thin on lightly floured surface.
    Cut into 8 wedges. Arrange on uncgreased baking sheet.
    Bake in 375 oven for about 10 min. until crisp and browned.
    repeat with the rest of the dough.
    makes 32 wedges.
    serve with dips, or cheese balls or pate.

    my changes I forgot the sugar.
    used mild cheddar might try parmesean next time.
    baked them for 15 min. I think where the lady lives she probably has a gas stove I have electric.
    I cut them into squares and whatever shape the dough wanted me to.

    I am looking for a tried and true crab cake recipe that is tasty and easy. I want to make tiny ones for gifts.
    Also can you make shrimp cakes similar to the way of crab and fish cakes.
    I need some snacks that are gluten free so I am reinventing some old ones I have known for ages.

    Would like to have Kathryn Mueller’s recipe for 6 lbs Fantasy Fudge. Did she ever post it? If she did, I missed seeing it and would really like to have it. Thanks
