A Different Kind Of Cheese Sandwich: Easy & Quick Parmesan & Cracked Black Pepper Spreadable Cheese

Creamy, peppery, savory cheese - spread onto buttery crackers. Now that's MY kind of cheese sandwich!

I once bought a cheese spread that I absolutely loved, and today I was craving it, so I made some (this is my homemade version of it). It's so easy, really fast, and definitely different from the classic cheese ball or spinach dip. As an appetizer, this cheese would go great on fresh crostini too!


~ 8 ounces cream cheese. Your choice of regular, reduced fat or fat free - they all work (regular tastes best though, of course).
~ 3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese. You can use expensive cheese if you want, or the less expensive commercial stuff works just fine too in something like this.
~ 1 Tbsp. coarse ground black pepper
~ 1/2 tsp. salt

Method: Mix all together. :)

After mixing, taste it. You might feel it needs more salt, or more pepper.

Serve immediately, or refrigerate for later use.
