Show of hands…how many of you grew up with this and love it?
This appetizer takes about two minutes to throw together. It isn’t fancy and won’t be winning a beauty contest or any fancy prizes, but dang it’s good and a winner in my book.
Now if you want to get all fancy, you can spread the cream cheese in a bowl or on a plate and add some tiny shrimp or crab meat. Me, I like to keep it simple – just cream cheese and cocktail sauce.
I’ve been eating this since I can remember (born in the 70’s) and plan to continue the tradition for decades to come.
