I made the mistake of freezing cream cheese. Not just one block but 4 blocks. I found out that cream cheese doesn't freeze very well. It becomes crumbly. This is something I think I knew!! I couldn't use it with any dip recipe or even spread it on a cracker without it crumbling. I didn't want to waste it so I decided to melt it into a dish and this is what I came up with. Even though it didn't turn out as smooth as I wanted (because I froze the cream cheese) it tasted wonderful and I will make again with cream cheese that I didn't freeze.
