CHEESE GOOP

January 15, 2011

Author Notes: The name is from my childhood days when anything that wasn't immediately identifiable was called "goop" (and long before Gwynith was born). My local grocery carried a product that had the same ingredients, but then suddenly it went away. So...I was left to make my own version. This is really a cheesy dip!...three cheeses! It is great on crostini and is perfect with crudities.It is fabulous on a hamburger . I have even thrown it on pasta and used it as a "secret sauce" for sandwiches. The hot red pepper flakes give it a bite, so add or subtract the amount you use accordingly. (depending on the heat quotient tolerance of the tasters). Perfect to pass around with some fresh veggies at a cocktail party.dymnyno

Thanks! It really does taste good and if you dip carrots and celery in it , it's healthy...right?

I love this one! Really versatile. I could see it over steamed broccoli too. And cauliflower. And lots of other things.

Looks delicious - three cheeses are perfect together...Do you mean 1 teaspoon or one tablespoon of red pepper flakes?

LOL! Don't feel bad, Liz--my husband won't eat the cheese! I, on the other hand, would devour it with a spoon.

I meant to say 1 tablespoon, but 1 teaspoon for wimps and none for Larry and Freddy!
