I know this isn’t really a holiday themed recipe, but with all the sugar cookies I ate yesterday, I needed something uber savory to balance myself out. So I made this, because all the ingredients I have here are ones that I always have on hand. Cheddar, scallions, garlic, and jalapeño, blended into a spread and baked on crusty bread until bubbly and gooey. Here’s how to make it:
1 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 tbsp butter, at room temperature
2 scallions, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1 tbsp chopped jalapeno
pinch of salt and pepper
2 large slices of crusty bread
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
In a food processor, blend the cheese and butter until combined. Throw in the scallions, garlic, and jalapeno, and add a pinch of salt and pepper. Process until relatively smooth, then spread it onto your bread.
Bake for 10 minutes until bubbly and cheesy. Enjoy!
