Sundried Tomato & Basil Spread
- 4 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1 cup Italian blend shredded cheese
- 1/4 cup sundried tomatoes in oil finely chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh basil finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic minced
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Serving suggestions: vegetables, crackers, toasted baguette slices, pretzels, etc.
- In a medium mixing bowl mix together cream cheese, Italian blend cheese, tomatoes, basil, and garlic until well combined (or place in a food processor and process several times until just combined). Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Refrigerate until ready to serve.
SNAPPY TIPS: Make sure the cream cheese is softened to room temperature to make it easy to combine. Instead of mixing by hand, you can also place the ingredients in a food processor and process until just combined.
