Hungarian Cheese Spread (Liptauer)

"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."

    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.

    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!

    I love this stuff! This recipe is much better flavored than the one I used to use. We could hardly wait for the flavors to "meld" before eating it. Thank you my fellow Chic Chef, for sharing this recipe during Zaar World Tour 4.

    Made this for ZWT4 and ATE IT UP!! I'll be making this for my next party. I love that it doesn't have mayo in it like most dips.


Hello, I am a married, no little ones, but great DH and 3 cats. Grew up in rural Nebraska with a family who loves to cook and eat. Trying to be healthier these days and lose some lbs. I do a lot of batch cooking (not quite OAMC). I am trying to get my sister to do it, she has 4 boys (14 to 6) very active and a husband. I love to collect recipes and cookbooks. I have decided that I am going to try to a new recipe each week. That will be 52 new things done this year. MY RATING SYSTEM: 5 stars: recipes that I or DH personally like . These will include recipes that I may have added or subtracted ingredients for personal tastes. 4 stars: recipes that I or DH thought was good & would eat if served to us, probably will not make again without changes. 3 stars: This is a dish that looks good but the flavor just is not there. More than likely will not make again 2 stars: Not our tastes at all. Not to say this recipe is not good just not for us. 1 star: I think that the we would have to end up in the hospital to give a 1 star rating, but will see how it goes.
