I have made this 3 times and each time I think it tastes better and better. I didn't have any whipped cream cheese so I went online to find out if I could sub a block of cream cheese. Yes, you can. 1 block and 2 tbsps of milk whipped together with an electric mixer works nicely. My dd loves rondele and pub cheese and I won't buy it again since I have this recipe now. Thank you so much!
I tried this recipe right after eating store bought spread. This was just as good if not better. Make it a day or so in advance for stronger flavor. It's great to take in your picnic basket on wine trips. Good recipe, Anovamom. Update: I never have whipped cream cheese on hand so have always used a block plus 2 T. milk and whip with a handmixer as suggested by jb4. This time I went ahead and added ALL ingredients with the milk. It blended beautifully and the job was done quickly. Easy!!
I love this recipe. I was looking for a spread for turkey and ham roll ups in tortillas. This was very yummy. I used two blocks of cream cheese and added a bit of milk like others suggested. I also added some 1/2 a tsp McCormick's Perfect Pinch vegetable seasoning and 1/3 teaspoon of Italian seasoning, I used a little garlic powder in mine as well as minced garlic, some extra onion powder, and some ground pepper. Very yummy. Look forward to making this again!
I made this over the holiday, exactly as described. I did make it in advance at the advice of other reviewers. Super simple and delicious!
This is ok, it gets better on standing. Even with extra onion powder and a touch of pepper it's still missing something. I'll have to play around with this.
Italian seasoning and garlic spread, very nice!
I enjoyed this a lot. I used a block of 1/3 the fat cream cheese (which is a bit softer than ordinary cream cheese) and a bit of minced garlic in oil... then I blended it with the onion powder. Instead of italian seasoning I used a french blend. It was delicious. My boyfriend loved it too. I used a touch more spices, onion and garlic because I was going for a bolder flavor. It was stupendous. I think I ended up using a *bit* less salt but I didn't miss it. I personally loved this more than cheese balls too. I might try adding finely shredded smoked gouda next time.
I took another chef's suggestion and used one 8 oz. block of cream cheese mixed with a couple of tablespoons of milk to get the soft cream cheese consistency. I went a little heavy on the garlic and it was great. Served it with bagels.
I took this to a party and everyone LOVED it! The only thing I did wrong is that I added more garlic...NOT. Mine was toooooo garlicy. Will definitely make again.
