Chive and Onion Cream Cheese

Chive and Onion Cream Cheese created by Andi Longmeadow Farm

This could be used as a dip or a spread. I made it up when I realized I needed it for a recipe I was about to make: recipe#204602. I thought it turned out very flavorful and yummy.

    Thank you for posting this great recipe! I did make a few small changes: I don't like feta so I used goat cheese. I reduced onion powder to 1/4 tsp, added about 1 TB of mixed herbs, minced (I used what I had in my garden - a big basil leaf, 5 or 6 parsley leaves, and a few tarragon leaves) , a dash of garlic powder, and a few drops of worchestershire sauce. Also a dash of salt & pepper. I mixed this up the night before and chilled it overnight, then had it on bagels for breakfast. It was great! The tarragon added a little background sweetness, and the onion/chive flavor was paramount. I'll definitely go back to this recipe again!

    Added herbs, salt & pepper, garlic powder, and worchestershire sauce. Subbed goat cheese for the feta. Reduced onion powder.

    Very good recipe. If you are like me, I do not always have fresh chives on hand, so i used 2 teaspoons dried chives. (fresh would have been better) You can substitute the onion powder for 1 packed Tablespoon minced green onion tops (use the white bulb part of onion if you like a stronger onion flavor). A sprinkle of garlic salt and a dash of pepper is nice. It is best to refrigerate several hours, but better if overnight If you think it is too thick for a dip, you can add a teaspoon of milk or half & half.

    I just made this and let me tell you, it is awesome! I love it on bagels and with crackers. I also made a batch for a recipe that called for Philadelphia similar cream cheese. I used green onions in place of chives and it works just as well!
