During one winter break back in college, while visiting my grandparents, a few years before my grandpa passed, he showed me how to make his “family secret” cheese. So shhhh, this is a secret!
I’ve made this cheese for several parties and events over the years. I have also given it as holiday gifts in cute jars. People would always ask for the recipe, but I would never give it out – it’s a family secret after all. Well, I did some googling on horseradish cheese…so much for the family secret. There has to be at least a dozen similar recipes on the internet. So since it’s already out there, I figure it’s okay to share.
I’m sure you’re thinking this recipe must be hard…I did. Boy, was I wrong. Only 4 ingredients and SO GOOD!!! Be sure to have a few containers, this recipe makes a lot and can be stored in the refrigerator from Thanksgiving to the New Year.
Horseradish Cheese Spread
- 2 Pound Block of Velveeta, cut into cubes
- 1 Cup Hellmann’s® Real Mayonnaise (I only use Hellmann’s for this recipe)
- 8 oz Fresh Prepared Horseradish (drain excess liquid on top)
- 5-6 dashes of Tabasco Sauce
Melt cheese in a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, you can use a regular pan on medium heat, stirring continuously until cheese is melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in mayonnaise, horseradish and Tabasco. Mix until completely blended. Pour into a small crocks or ceramic bowls. Chill. Serve with crackers. Store in refrigerator. Enjoy!
