herbed cream cheese

IMG_7189
One of my favorite treats is any kinds of herbed cheese spread and I've discovered that it is almost easier to make your own.

There is nothing better than using fresh herbs in any kind of cooking- they are so simple and delicious! I picked some of my favorites- basil, sage, oregano and a little bit of chives and I diced them up

I added the herbs to cream cheese- but you could use any kind of soft cheese.

I mixed up the cheese and herbs.
The herbed cheese could be used on all kinds of things- crackers, sandwiches, bagels, in recipes but my favorite is to use it with vegis.

I like to cut up a cucumber

and add a dollop of herbed cheese to the top of each slice.

Last I add a tiny basil leaf to the top of the cheese.

  5. Great idea! I'm thinking it would be good in a thickened yogurt too if there was no cream cheese in the house.

  10. Oh my goodness, it's almost 2 in the morning and you're making hungry. Now I want to go dig out the cream cheese in the back of the fridge, find my scissors and walk 200 feet to the back of the backyard and somehow identify the basil in the pitchblack of the garden and bring it in and mix it into the cream cheese. Oh, and I'd need to grab some thyme from the pot on the front porch. Should I go out in my pjs? No one's up, right? Yum yum yum.

    How much of each herb do you use?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh my heavens! Can you say divine!? I have just started a grain free/sugar free diet and snacks are probably the hardest thing for me. I live off of apples but need to mix it up (and cut back on the sugar content in the apples) so this is perfect! And just one more reason to start some indoor herbs :) Thank you!
