I thought I was finished with snacks for the Super Bowl, but you just can't have too many snacks!
Here's an easy thing to do with cheese. Scoop it into a bowl, pack it into a crock or mold it into a football shape. Serve with your favorite hearty crackers, crusty bread or bagels.
This is yummy stuff!
Bacon and Horseradish Cheese
Makes 2-1/2 cups cheese spread
3 tablespoons butter (margarine or oil not recommended)
1 onion, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1 (12-16 oz.) package bacon (cooked, drained and coarsely crumbled)
2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese (regular preferred but low fat or neuchatel will work, too)
2 teaspoons horseradish (or to taste)
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Melt butter in a frying pan over low heat. Add onions and cook till soft and transparent - about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool mixture to room temperature.
Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese till fluffy. By hand, fold in cooled butter/onion mixture (scrape out pan well), crumbled bacon and horseradish. Taste. Stir in additional salt and pepper if desired. Refrigerate to blend flavors.
