Readers and Writers Recipes: Mock Boursin Cheese Spread

This is a tasty cheese spread with just the right amount of zip added by garlic and spices. Like last week’s Eggless Milkless Dark Chocolate Cake, Mock Boursin Cheese Spread works well for a book club or readers’ group get-together, family get-together, or any other fun gathering. All you add are crackers to spread the cheese on, or use it to fill fresh celery sticks.

Mock Boursin Cheese Spread

Ingredients:

16 ounces lo-cal cream cheese (softened)

1 cup margarine (softened)

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1/4-teaspoon crushed basil

1/4-teaspoon thyme

1/4-teaspoon oregano

1/4-teaspoon marjoram

1/4-teaspoon dill

1/4-teaspoon black pepper

1/4-teaspoon salt

Directions:

1-Combine the cream cheese and margarine using a mixer.

2-Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until well-mixed.

3-Serve with crackers or fill celery sticks with the cheese spread.

4-Refrigerate any leftovers. (The spread can be frozen for later use).

Notes:

1-This recipe can be cut in half if you’re only making the cheese spread for one. By the way, Mock Boursin Cheese Spread on crackers and a bowl of soup make a delicious lunch.

2-You can also cover one half of a bagel with Mock Boursin Cheese Spread, add a couple of slices of lunch meat and some lettuce, and top it with the other half of the bagel. If you’re adventurous, you can also add mustard, tomatoes, etc. to make a great sandwich.
