“This is a recipe for a cheese spread that is common throughout the South, which many versions for this recipe can be found. They're all good on grilled cheese sandwiches, as a cracker spread, or served with fried green tomatoes. I found this recipe on the Allrecipes website (posted by QueenReyney), and I added the most repeated changes that reviewers stated made the spread even better.”
