Who doesn’t love a good cocktail party? I am serving up a homemade Sriracha Parmesan Cheese Spread.
This Parmesan Cheese Spread is my inspiration for celebrating the final season of Mad Men. I have scanned through old cookbooks and read old recipe cards from my grandparents who were always throwing cocktails parties during the 60s, and I wanted to serve up something that they would have with a slight twist. They would serve up a dip like this with crackers, or they might even pipe these cheese into small tomatoes. I love this type of cheese spread because you can make this ahead of time, and then just set it out when you want to get ready for your cocktail party.
Parmesan Cheese Spread
- 1 lb cream cheese at room temperature
- 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
- 1⁄4 cup sour cream
- 2 teaspoons sriracha
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
- Place the room temperature cream cheese, mayonnaise, and sour cream in a bowl and beat together with a mixer until the sauce is smooth and creamy. Add Sriracha, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard, and Parmesan cheese. Allow the cheese spread flavors to mingle together for at least one hour before serving. Store in an air tight container. This will stay fresh for about 1 week.
