Garlic herb cheese spread

Amanda Villarreal


I got this recipe from a friend, who came up with it when trying to replicate an expensive mix she had tried.

The mix makes a fantastic cheese spread. The great thing is you can prepare a large quantity of the dry mix to keep on hand for a quick appetizer or dish to pass. The mix also makes a great gift to give to friends and family at the holidays that isn't perishable. I also use this mix in my stuffing, burgers, and added into a creamy sauce I make to go over fish. The possibilities are endless.

No-Cook or Other


1 Tbsp
dried onion flakes
1 tsp
dried dill
1 tsp
dried chives
1 tsp
dried minced garlic
1/2 tsp
dried parsley
1/4 tsp
garlic powder
1/4 tsp
kosher salt


8 oz pkg
cream cheese- softened
4 oz
shredded cheddar ( i always shred my own b/c pre-shredded has a powder added that affects the flavor)
2 Tbsp
white wine (sauvignon blanc, or another dry white wine works best)

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix all dry ingredients together. I usually make a large recipe (8 times or more), and keep it on hand for the next time I want to make a spread or to add into other dishes.

Can be stored for up to a year in an airtight container in a cool dry place.
If making the cheese spread...

Mix softened cream cheese, dry mix and wine until well combined and smooth. Mix in cheese. Store in fridge for several hours or overnight before serving.
Serve with crackers, flatbread triangles or veggies.
