Beer Cheese Spread
2 lbs. sharp Cheddar cheese, at room temp.
2 cloves garlic, mashed
3 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. dry mustard
Tabasco to taste
1/2 bottle beer, or more
1 tsp. salt, to taste
Cut the cheese into cubes and place them in a food processor or
electric mixer. Process until perfectly smooth. Add the garlic,
Worcestershire, mustard, and Tabasco. Blend well. Add the beer, a
little at a time, while continuing to beat the cheese, until the
mixture is a good, firm spreading consistency. (Too much beer will
make the cheese too fluffy.) Stir in the salt, and refrigerate.
(This is a superb keeper.) Serve on small slices of rye or pumpernickel
bread. Delicious with cold, cold beer.
