Strawberry and Cheese Spread

Why not have crackers and a cheese spread as the main dish in the lunch box? No really, hear me out.

A Grilled Cheese Sandwich is simply bread and cheese and it works.

Crackers = Bread
Cheese Spread= Cheese slice


This is inspired by a Southern Living recipe.

Strawberry and Cheese Spread
  • 8 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • a dash of salt and pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted
  • Strawberry Jam (I used Smucker's Simply Fruit)
  • Crackers (I used Kashi's Stoneground 7 grain party crackers)
Stir together cheese, mayo, onion and spices, until incorporated. Then add walnuts. Spread a thin layer of cheese spread in individual container and top with a couple of spoonfuls of strawberry jam.


If you dare, make this into a sandwich using a bagel. It may not be the prettiest, but it is mighty tasty!
