Entertaining Essentials: Horseradish Cheese Dip

Andy Anderson !


You have a bunch of hungry houseguests, and it is in-between meals (been there, done that, got the t-shirt). Just whip this tasty dip up, throw in some crackers, or veggies, and stand back.

They will love you for it. So dang yummy.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Entertaining Essentials: Horseradish Cheese Dip


  2. You can make your own prepared horseradish, or you can pick it up at the store. Be advised that homemade is about twice as strong as store-bought versions, and lasts about 3 to 4 weeks in the refrigerator. Prepared horseradish is basically grated horseradish root, preserved with a bit of salt and white vinegar.
  3. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  4. Add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl.
  5. Use a fork to combine all the ingredients.
  6. Chef’s Note: I serve this dip at room temperature.
  8. Lay out some crackers and/or veggies, a few decorative napkins, and let your houseguests tuck in. Enjoy.
  9. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
