The alcohol in the beer boils away, but the flavor remains to work its magic in this sharp-flavored cheese spread.

Ingredients

8
oz. (2 cups) finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1
teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2
teaspoon hot honey mustard or Dijon mustard
1/8
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
1
garlic clove, minced
1/3
cup beer
2
tablespoons margarine or butter, softened

Steps

  • 1 In food processor bowl with metal blade, combine cheese, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, ground red pepper and garlic.
  • 2 Bring beer just to a boil in small saucepan. Pour over cheese mixture in processor; process 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or just until smooth. Add margarine; process until blended. Spoon into serving bowl. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour to blend flavors.
  • 3 For easier spreading, let cheese spread stand at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve with assorted crackers.
