Tips about making dill cream cheese spread 🔎

Cheese spread is used both for sandwiches and various cold appetizers. As a result, it’s very useful to know a few homemade cream cheese spread recipes to enjoy a quick breakfast with a delicious sandwich or to make attractive and delicious appetizers such as stuffed tomatoes, stuffed bell peppers, ham roll-ups, and so on.

Preparing a homemade cream cheese spread is very easy. You need some fresh sweet cheese, from which some of the best are ricotta and cottage cheese. Drier mozzarella types can be used as well.

Being so simple, there are not many tips to share regarding this recipe. There is important to chop the dill as finely as you can, especially if you don’t combine ingredients into the blender at the end.

Regarding the flavors of this recipe, green onion can be replaced by chives or skipped entirely if you don’t like the taste.

Pepper and garlic are also optional, however, I recommend you to use them because fit very well together with fresh cheese and dill.

Finally, waiting for some before serving is very important to mix flavors better. Needless to say, when you’re in hurry, you can use the cheese spread immediately. Furthermore, when you make appetizers with dill cheese, you might also use it as soon as you’re ready with it.

Some of the most delicious cold appetizers that I prepare with this homemade cream cheese recipe include cold stuffed tomatoes, cold stuffed bell peppers, and Bologna or ham roll-ups. Spicy salami matches also very well the taste of this spread, so making roll-ups with this combination is a very good choice.

An important thing that I have to underline is to avoid keeping the spread too many days before serving. This is because the fresh cheese starts fermenting after 24-48 hours and will become sour. As a result, there is ideal to make the cheese spread in the evening for the next day if you can.

By the way, you can replace dill with other aromatic plants such as fresh parsley, coriander, and basil. The resulted cream cheese spreads will be very tasty too!
