Dijon Cheddar Beer Spread Recipe (Party Appetizer Recipes)

See More Party Appetizer Recipe Ideas HereSome parties and gatherings are the kind you plan weeks in advance while others just sort of happen.

The phone rings, you bump into old friends while running errands, you hear happy news from a good neighbor; and somehow you end up with a living room full of hungry people wondering what delicious thing you’re about to bring from in the kitchen.

Today’s Dijon Cheddar Beer Spread from the folks at the Culinary Concoctions by Peabody food blog might just be the perfect appetizer for those times.

A versatile spread that you can serve with your favorite crackers, chips, crusty bread, carrots and celery sticks, etc. it’s very easy to adapt this recipe as needed.

Prefer to use peanuts, sunflower seeds, or almonds you have on hand instead of hazelnuts? This recipe will still be delicious.

Want to make this spread ahead of time in case of emergency? No problem at all as it can be stored for 3-4 days in the refrigerator.



8 oz cream cheese
2 tsp Dijon mustard
2 1/2 cups shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
2 TBSP heavy cream
1/4 tsp Tabasco sauce
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup flavorful beer (the folks at Peabody used Redhook Ale)
