This recipe came about when I realized at midnight that I was supposed to bring a potluck appetizer for work the next day. I had to find something to bring using items I already had on hand. I had cream cheese, so I thought I'd make a cheese spread. There were few other items that I had that would mesh well with that...it would have to do. I didn't get a chance to taste it after it sat overnight, but I knew I had a hit when someone, during lunch, stood and held up a cracker with the spread and yelled, "who made this"? Who knew that just 3 ingredients could taste so good?!
Place softened cream cheese, shredded sharp cheddar, and sliced green onions in a large bowl and stir well to mix thoroughly. Spoon into serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours, (overnight is best). Serve with crackers and/or celery. Also makes a great filling for pinwheel sandwiches.
