Once Upon A Time Recipe

I am joining Cathy @ A Bit Of The Blarney for a 'Once Upon A Time Recipe' post.

This is a crab/cheese spread that we enjoyed while eating at Fulton's Crab House in Downtown Disney, the restaurant is pricey but well worth it! It had the most delicious seafood as well as a variety on the menu to pick from if seafood is not to your liking. The recipe for the cheese spread was printed on the back of our reservation card.

(Yields 3 cups)

1 1/2 lb. Cream Cheese
1/4 Cup Roasted Garlic
1/2 Tablespoon Green Onions, chopped
1/8 Cup Fresh Basil
1/8 Cup Lemon Juice
1/2 Tablespoon Horseradish
1 Tablespoon Crabmeat or Crab Base
1/8 Cup Roasted Red Peppers
1/2 Tablespoon Hickory Smoked Mustard

Mix all ingredients except cream cheese in a large mixing bowl, set aside. Cut cream cheese into small cubes and place them in a mixer (I used just a hand mixer and the spread came out fine). Mix until smooth. Stop, scrape sides of bowl and mix again. When the cream cheese is smooth, add the rest of the ingredients to mixer. Be careful not to over mix. Store in a covered container until ready to serve. Serve with an assortment of bread and crackers.

Please join Cathy for some more recipes!
