I remember having something very similar to this as an appetizer at a party. When I asked for the recipe I was told that it was a family recipe from Hungaria and she just dumps it all in. I then decided to research it and this is what I have come up with. It is combination of several different recipes that I came across until I came up with the taste I remembered.
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1 cup cottage cheese
- 3 tablespoons capers
- 1 teaspoon caraway seed
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- Cream together all ingredients.
- Place into a bowl or pretty mold covered with plastic wrap. Cover top of cheese with plastic wrap.
- Refrigerate for at least 2 hours overnight is best.
- Unmold on to a serving plate and surround with rye bread squares, fresh veggies, or crackers.
I have made this twice in the last three weeks and we love it!! The first rime I used "hot" paprika--it really gives it a kick, but maybe too hot for some folks, so the second time I used half "hot" and half "sweet" paprika. Still had a punch, but much more mellow.
KÃ¶szÃ¶nÃ¶m (Thank You!) I adore this stuff--who needs anything else to eat? I served it with Russian Black Bread (For the Bread Machine)--it was amazing! Made for ZWT4
This one is very easy to whip together. I made this for my Grandmother's 90th B-day party and will be serving it with veggies. It tastes great right now, so I can only imagine how good it will be when the flavors marry. Made for ZWT 4 by a Jefe!
