Big Batch Cheese Dip/Spread

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese
1 container (16 ounces) sharp Cheddar cheese spread (Merkt's, Kaukauna)
1 container (16 ounces) sour cream
1 tablespoon dill weed
3 tablespoons dried minced onions

Instructions

Bring cream cheese and Cheddar cheese spread to room temperature. Blend all ingredients at once with a mixer. Refrigerate overnight for best results. Stir once before serving.

Serve with a vegetable relish tray or crackers. This product is too stiff to serve with chips.

Note: "Low-fat and fat-free sour cream and cream cheese substitutions do not compromise the flavor or quality."
