Every few weeks, I gather the bits of cheese I have left in the fridge. I use shredded cheese, but I really prefer blocks of cheese that I grate myself, so I frequently have a little bit of a few kinds left. Sometimes, those bits of cheese have dried out a little so I throw them all in the Ninja blender and make a spread or a cheese ball!
There really isn't a recipe, but if you end up with as much as 2 cups of shredded cheese, add at least 4 ounces of cream cheese to the combination. If you don't have an entire 8 ounce block of cream cheese to add ... use a couple Tablespoons of butter or a butter spread.
To season your blend, add fresh herbs ... a little bottled salad dressing ... or my favorite which is powdered ranch dressing mix. You can flavor the cheese spread with prepared pesto or your favorite combination of dried herbs.
It can't be much easier and the best thing about this ... is you are not wasting food that has a tendency to sit in the fridge and dry out!
