2 tablespoons Cabot Salted Butter

2 teaspoons coarse-grained Dijon mustard

1 small clove garlic, minced

1/4-1/3 cup white wine or beer

*You can easily vary the flavor of this quick spread by using one of Cabot’s flavored cheddars – Cabot Horseradish Cheddar, Cabot Tomato Basil Cheddar, or Cabot Garlic & Herb Cheddar. Or embellish the basic recipe by adding some artichoke pesto, tomato pesto or chopped black olives.
