Italian Inn Cheese Spread

"This recipe is from the Italian Inn in Tulsa, OK. After over 40 years in business they closed their doors. They were famous for their cheese spread that was served before every entree with antipasto and fresh hot breadsticks. They sold as much of the cheese and breadsticks to go as eating in. The cheese is the key to this recipe, and they ordered it from Wisconsin."

    Does anyone have the corn soup recipe from the Italian Inn in Tulsa, OK? It was delicious!

    I did get to eat at the Italian Inn and this cheese dip is beyond yum! Italian Inn was THE restaurant (also Mondo's) which did reopen after many years being gone to go to. Veggies, pretzel stick or bread sticks it's so hard to put down. Enjoy!

    I never went to the Italian Inn but this spread is like crack! I can't stop eating it every time I made it. Love it on toasted bread like a grilled cheese. Easy to make and you can adjust the heat to your liking.

    Definitely outstanding. Just enough heat for us. Served with crackers; and made for Camera-less Chefs. Thanks, TGL for posting and playing!
