'Tis The Season - Horseradish Cheese Spread

Hi Everyone, It's Mary from Sweet Little Bluebird, stopping by the Cafe to share one of my favorite things for the holidays for our "Tis The Season" series!

My official kick off to the holiday season is the week of Thanksgiving, when I make my Grandpa Kelly's famous Horseradish Cheese Spread!  

Most families have that one (or more) food item, that is a must have, otherwise the holidays would not be the same.  Well that's how I feel about this cheese - I grew up on this stuff.   I don't remember a Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years without it.  The holidays just aren't the holidays without this spread in the house!  

If you are a fan of horseradish bar cheese, or horseradish in general, I know you will LOVE this stuff!  Just ask my good friend Danni, from Silo Hill Farm, she loves it and has made it a few times!   The best part about the recipe, besides how yummy it only takes four ingredients! 


2 Pound Block of Velveeta, cut into cubes
1 Cup Hellmann's® Real Mayonnaise (I only use Hellman's for this recipe)
8 oz Fresh Prepared Horseradish (drain excess liquid on top) 
5-6 dashes of Tabasco Sauce 

Melt cheese in a double boiler. If you don't have a double boiler, you can use a regular pan on medium heat, stirring continuously until cheese is melted and smooth.  Remove from heat. Stir in mayonnaise, horseradish and Tabasco. Mix until completely blended.  Pour into a small crocks or ceramic bowls. Chill. Serve with crackers.   Store in refrigerator.  Enjoy!  Cheers!

If you make the cheese, I'd love for you stop by and let me know what you think!  

Thanks for stopping by the Cafe!  I hope everyone (in the states) has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
