Cream cheese and pepper jelly, a match made in heaven. So many of my customers who come through rave about this combination and I can’t blame them, I grew up eating this dip every year at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Now though we are introducing the next level in cream cheese, pepper jelly perfection.
8oz cream cheese
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup crushed pecans
1/2 cup of any Grumpy Man Pepper Jelly
Let the cream cheese come to room temp to make it easier to combine ingredients.
Combine cream cheese, mayo, sharp cheddar cheese and crushed pecans in a bowl, once blended pour pepper jelly over the top and become the hero of the party.
Alternate recipe swap out the pecans for bacon bits to make it smoky and salty. You can also put into a small baking dish, cover with cheddar cheese, bake on 350 for about 15 minutes, remove from oven, coat with pepper jelly and return to oven for 5 minutes to make temperatures uniform.
Hope you enjoy and remember, this is good any time of the year, not just the holidays.
