Aunt Peggy’s Corned Beef and Spring Onion Spread

Here’s another quick recipe for a tasty appetizer that can be whipped up in no time. There’s only three ingredients in this flavorful cheese spread.
I first tasted this recipe over 20 years ago, at a wedding shower for my oldest brother and my (then, soon to be) sister-in-law. At the time, I was living at home and my recipe file was pretty slim. You can’t know how thrilled I was when she shared the easy recipe with me. I think our family has made this staple cheese spread every Christmas Eve since then.
This weekend, I declared Sunday evening as Appetizer Night. We prepared our favorite appetizers instead of a big Sunday meal. Everyone pitched in and we had quite a selection of snacks in no time at all. This cheese spread was the first to be gobbled up… it is always a favorite in our house!

Aunt Peggy’s Corned Beef and Spring Onion Spread

1 8 oz package Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1 2 oz package of Buddig Original Corned Beef, chopped
3 green onions, sliced thinly

In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, corned beef and green onions; mix thoroughly. Lay a piece of plastic wrap on a flat surface. Scoop the spread out of the bowl and pile in the center of the plastic wrap. Shape the spread into a disk shaped loaf using the plastic wrap to help shape the loaf.
Chill until ready to serve.
