Another favorite ingredient of ours is blue cheese. I mix it in hamburgers. Put it in salads and pasta sauces. Melt it in sandwiches. Just about anyplace I can use the stuff, I do so. This recipe is for a blue cheese spread that we typically serve at the holiday party. I use the leftovers in a myriad of ways. It's been known to show up in grilled cheese sandwiches or slathered on grilled chicken breasts. I've mixed it with some veggies and pasta and created a yummy pasta dish. I've also been known to sit down with some of this and a handful of crackers and call it lunch...

Whip the cream cheese and fold in the other ingredients. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours prior to serving to allow the flavors to blend.
