My two centsPeanut Butter huh??? Not sure about that one. Love the creativity though.
Any way, my family has two favorites.
1. brown sugar, cream cheese, sharp cheddar all mixed together.
2. JD regular sausage, cream cheese, pepper jack cheese all mixed together.
Obviously, #1 is for people who like things a bit milder and #2 is for people who like things a bit wilder. (I have been known to leave in a few jalapeÃ±o seeds for #2)
Bacon on top of both and we prefer the boats.
Make sure the cream cheese is room temp when mixing. I use the reduced fat cream cheese. Trust me you can NOT tell the difference. I did a blind taste test once without anyone even knowing it. Not one single person (feed 10 people that night) said anything about it. Then, after all the ABT's were gone, I told them. I had to dig the box out of the trash to prove it. I think there is enough flavors going on that it just works. Why add fat when you don't need to?
P.S. I did use left over smoked salmon once. It was pretty good but we like the two ways mentioned above better. Maybe you like fish better than we do?
