If you are looking for a different appetizer or sandwich filling, my sister-in-law shared her recipe for a beet spread. It has been a family favorite for years and one of those recipes she’s always asked to bring to pot luck dinners.
- 8 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
- 1 can (15 oz) Pickled Beets, drained
- 2 tablespoons Horseradish
- Salt & Pepper to Taste
Chop pickled beets very finely and combine with cream cheese and horseradish in a blender or food processor. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Use as a spread on crackers, vegetable slices or as a vegetarian filling for little afternoon tea sandwiches.
It has a very different flavor. A lot of people say it tastes like crab!
