Irish Whiskey Cheddar Spread

This spread is delicious on crackers or toast, but it is also a great filling for sandwiches or omelets. This spread tastes best, and spreads more easily, when given a chance to warm up for an hour before serving.

  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 3 1⁄2 oz. Kerrygold Aged Cheddar with Irish Whiskey, shredded
  • 1 Tbsp. whiskey

  • 1⁄4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1⁄4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1⁄4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1⁄4 tsp. dry mustard powder
  • 1⁄4 tsp. kosher salt


  • In the work bowl of a food processor combine the cream cheese, shredded cheese, whiskey, horseradish, onion powder, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, mustard powder, and salt.
