Recipe of the day - Pub Style Beer Cheese

Here is a very easy recipe for delicious beer cheese (or Pub style cheese). Full of flavour and easy to keep on hand for entertaining. Ideal served at room temperature with pretzels, chips or veggie sticks. Don't worry when the kids love it too, the alcohol content is modest :)

Pub Style Beer Cheese

16 oz of sharp cheddar cheese, cut into bite size cubes or grated
4 oz cream cheese, room temp & cubed 
1.5 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard 
2 small cloves garlic, minced 
1 teaspoon paprika 1/2 -2/3 cups of beer 

1. Place all ingredients, except for the beer in a food processor. Blend until finely chopped. 

2. Slowly pour in beer a little at a time until desired texture is achieved. I started with ½ cup, and added a little more (about 2/3 cups). 

3. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour. Served with pretzels, crackers or some veggies! The flavour gets better you give it some time so making it ahead is a good plan.

Note: To make it Gluten Free: omit worcestershire and add 1/4 tsp salt
