Obatzda (Bavarian Cheese Spread)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Nif_H

A rich and creamy cheese spread that someone was kind enough to share. This Bavarian delicacy is normally served in Beergardens together with fresh pretzels or rye bread and some nice German wheat beer. You may have let the cheese get to room temperature to mix. Enjoy!

This was a great dip with soft Bavarian-style pretzels! I did use dried minced onion (1 1/2 Tbs for a half batch) and might scale back just a little next time for a little less oniony aftertaste. I also used an Oktoberfest and would use that beer again. Thanks for a keeper!
