GRANDPA KELLY’S FAMOUS HORSERADISH CHEESE SPREAD – Only 4 Ingredients!! A cherished family recipe for over 50 years. We make this the week of Thanksgiving and it lasts until New Year’s Eve. One of my favorite family traditions. Skip the store bought bar cheese and make your own!
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!
