Tips on Making this Homemade Cheese Spread Recipe

Like a lot of food, the idea that homemade is almost always better than store-bought is true for cheese spread. You get to make it fresh and also control what’s in it. Read on for these helpful tips to ensure fuss-free cheese spread making at home.


  • First, chill the cheese spread before serving. The flavor will improve as the ingredients sit together. You can make this cheese dip a day ahead.
  • Add other delicious ingredients to this basic recipe. You can give it a fresh herby flavor by adding chopped chives and cilantro, for instance. Moreover, you can make it spicy with hot sauce or chili oil. You can also easily turn it into a pimiento cheese by adding a bunch of pimientos and using pepper jack cheese.
  • Enjoy it hot by baking it. It’ll then form a lovely golden-brown crust at the top.
  • Lastly, do not freeze your leftover homemade cheese spread. Otherwise, the repetitive freezing and thawing will make it watery. Keep them in a sealed container in the fridge instead and consume them within two days.

This homemade cheese spread recipe combines sour cream, cream cheese, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce to make the ultimate cracker dip.
