Strawberry Cheese

Posted Jul 03 2008 5:10pm



Why are strawberries called strawberries? The word 'strawberry' dates back nearly 2,000 years to the Anglo-Saxons. Is it because the strawberry's runners look like straw? Or because the berry's external seeds look like little golden bits of chaff? No one knows.


This little stuffed strawberry dish is a dessert-appetizer-snack. It's a great way to do something different with strawberries other than eat them out of hand--which is pretty hard to beat.


You don't have to stuff strawberries with this strawberry-cheese, you can just spread this mix on muffins or toast or crackers.


Makes about 1½ cup

6 ounces cream cheese

1½ teaspoons toasted poppy seeds

⅓ Cup finely chopped strawberries

Several whole strawberries for stuffing

In a small bowl, mix together cheese, poppy seeds and chopped strawberries. Stuff several hollowed out strawberries--this amount will stuff about two dozen good size strawberries.

 You can also spoon this strawberry cheese into a small, decorative serving dish and garnish with whole strawberry and thyme and serve with crudités or little squares of toast.
