Irish cheddar cheese and Guinness spread
Irish pub cheese spread is a great way to start your feast on St. Patrick’s Day. I make mine with roasted garlic because frankly its one of my favorite flavors in the world. Many of the other versions I have seen use caraway seeds,they are a strong flavor and one that many people don’t love. So garlic is my answer. The Worcestershire sauce gives a nice depth of flavor to stand up to the Guinness, so don’t be scared. This dip also can be used on sandwiches from basic ham or roasted turkey to a burger hot off the grill. Enjoy!!
½ lbs grated strong Irish Cheddar
4 oz cream cheese at room temperature
1 head roasted garlic
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
½ cup Guinness Dark Stout
1 tsp of paprika
Serve with crostini (rye or pumpernickel bread would be great) and veggies as an appetizer or use a spread on sandwiches and burgers.
