All of our Butter or Cream Cheese Blends in one listing
** YOU CHOOSE ONE! **
Each of these salt-free blends can be mixed with either butter (or a butter substitute) or cream cheese. We actually recommend the lower fat Neufchatel cheese as a spread. The completed butter or cream cheese can be placed in ceramic dishes and frozen, rolled into balls for entertaining or just used on your morning bagel.
We make 8 different Butter/Cream Cheese blends and this listing allows you to choose which one you want. Mix and match them.
Boursin Cheese Blend -- This classic French specialty can be used fresh or frozen for later. Using ricotta and / or cottage cheese to craft a great spread that is perfect on toasted bread or crackers, great with a wine and cheese tray; it even makes an alfredo sauce with the recipe included. Made with chives, parsley, marjoram, onion and black pepper.
Butter 'n' Cheese -- My personal favorite mix, I cannot cook without it. A medley of 7 herbs creates a great herbal butter or cream cheese spread. You can sprinkle it on vegetables. Contains: basil, tarragon, chives, marjoram, garlic, parsley & rosemary.
Cilantro Spread - Another of the original trilogy of butter and spread mixtures, this blend contains cilantro for creating a tangy cheese ball or flavored butter. Not too overpowering, it is different from your average cream cheese blend. Contains: cilantro, parsley, thyme and other herbs.
Garlic & Herb Combination - My top seller, because of the glorious garlic taste. Blend it with butter for killer garlic bread; Put in oil for a toasted bread dip or pizza topping; combine with cream cheese or sour cream for a spread or dip; use with vinegar and oil to make garlic dressing.
