The reason I’m calling this Retro Cheese Spread is I’ve been eating it since the 70’s. This was one of my mom and grandmother’s go to recipes. When my brother was here for a visit I made this to serve as a snack and he loved it. He hadn’t had it for years but recognized it as soon as he tasted it. My mom used to make it as a cheese ball…you know, those retro 70’s party cheese balls! But I love the taste of this cheese so much I prefer it all by itself!
There are only a a few ingredients and it’s super easy to make. Whenever I serve it I always get asked for the recipe…so here goes! The hardest part of the recipe is finding those little jars of Kraft Roka Blue and Old English Cheeses. Every grocery store I go to has them in a different spot.
All you have to do is allow the cream cheese to soften and beat with an electric mixer until it’s light and fluffy. Add the Roka Blue and English Cheddar and do the same. Now just add 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder, and 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce. Give it another whip and your’re done!
I almost forgot the last step…grab some crackers, pour yourself a glass of wine and relax and enjoy your efforts! If you prefer to serve this as a cheese ball, you would simply place the cheese spread on a large piece of plastic wrap and form into a ball. Refrigerate until it’s firm and roll in some finely chopped pecans or walnuts. But as I said….I like it just like this!
