Pub Cheese

Seasonal Sunday:

Kiss me, I’m Irish!

(Or, at least I married an Irishman 😉 )

It is time to start dreaming up some fun ways to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day.  There are a million crafty projects and ideas popping up everywhere I look, but one of my tried and true favorites is some good old fashioned pub cheese.  After all, good food is an essential for any celebration and I have not met a soul that is not immediately addicted to this stuff.  With a glass of Guiness, it is the perfect way to get in the spirit.



8 oz cheddar

8 oz parmesan

1/2 container of cream cheese

1 -2 cloves of garlic

1/3 cup of Dry Sherry

pecans for garnish optional

rosemary optional

Add all the ingredients into a food processor and puree until smooth.  You will note in the pix that I started with the Ninja, but quickly switched over to a regular processor for some real motor strength (probably due to my lazy approach of not shredding the cheese first…tee hee).


The Parmesan gives it a nice sharp flavor.  When it comes to the garlic, I chose to add two whole cloves, but you can reduce it to one if you are not a huge fan of garlic.


The key ingredient in this dish is the sherry.  Dry and fabulous mixed with the sharp cheddar and Parmesan!


Yup….note the magic switch to a food processor. Ha!


Garnish this happy dish of fabulousness with your favorite chopped nut.  I am a total fan of pecans!  Oh, and do not forget the glass of Guiness…that would be an utter shame


Served with some pretzels and some gluten free toasts, I am ready to bring on some St. Paddy’s Day charm!


Get your taste buds ready!
