For our Christmas party, I'm updating old classics. So far, my menu is moving smoothly (goat cheese and dill deviled eggs, "lambs in blankets" with lamb sausage, puff pastry and feta/mint sauce). But there's an old appetizer of my mother's that I LOVE and really want to get right. I'm half tempted to make it as is, but really would like to try to avoid the processed cheese.
This weekend, I'll be experimenting, and will definitely try simply replacing the cheese spread with a sharp, high-quality cheddar. I considered goat cheese for its consistency, but I'm already doing goat cheese in the eggs.
Any thoughts from anyone?
