2 Hr

There will be lots of get-togethers leading up to Christmas and we know you need to have a few go-to favorites ready and waiting for when you need something company-fancy. This only takes minutes to whip up and you can keep it in the fridge for up to a week, so it’s perfect for when your neighbor, the gals from your bunco group, or Santa himself stop by. So say good-bye to worries and hello to a Southern classic that is always welcome.

What You'll Need

  • 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) block sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 (4-ounce) jar diced pimientos, well drained
  • 1/2 cup bacon bits
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

What to Do

Just a Suggestion!

  • This spread is perfect when served with our Parmesan Toast Crisps. To make them, using a 2-inch cookie cutter (or the rim of a juice glass), cut 24 circles from 8 slices white bread (3 per slice). This may be more or less depending on the size of the bread and your cutter. Place ½ cup of grated Parmesan cheese in a shallow dish.  Brush butter on both sides of bread circles, then dip each circle into the cheese, coating both sides. Place on baking sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for 5 to 6 minutes or until golden. Let cool then serve. Store in an airtight container.
