Football Blue Cheese Spread

Ok, isn’t blue cheese molded by nature? Why remind folk with a name like Molded Blue Cheese Spread? Retro quirk I guess. Never mind that…call this Patriot Blue Party Snack or Giants Cheesy Goodness or just plain Football Faves Blue Cheese Spread. Convenient of the teams to both have blue this year! And the “mold” is surrounded by astroturf errr…parsley green!

Of course, this is a good one no matter the cheesy occasion! Substitute fat free sour cream for the mayo and lower fat cream cheese to lighten it without losing taste!

Molded Blue Cheese Spread

2/3 minced fresh parsley
2 (3 oz) packages cream cheese
4 ounces blue cheese
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Dash cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
4 tablespoons mayonnaise

Prepare a small mold by generously oiling the inside. Press parsley along sides and bottom.

Thoroughly combine cream cheese, blue cheese, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper, and lemon juice in small bowl of electric mixer. Stir in mayonnaise until blended. Spoon carefully into prepared mold, cover and chill. Unmold and serve with unsalted crackers or melba rounds. Yield: 12 servings. From the Southern Living Party Cookbook, 1972

  1. People really liked their molds back then, didn’t they? I remember those cheese balls with the crushed walnuts or whatever it was on the outside, with the Ritz crackers. Very festive! 🙂

  2. yes! Indeed. Now, I have to say I saw a lot of cheese balls on sale at the supermarket tonight.

  3. Blue cheese is the best – perfect for the Big Game!
