How many days a week do you look in the refrigerator at a total loss for what to make for school lunch? You probably already have a ton of food staples in your fridge, but no idea how to put them together to create something your kids will love. When I came up with this super easy sandwich spread, it was one of those times.
Cream cheese and sun dried tomatoes are two foods that I always keep on hand, but until my last lunch emergency, I had never thought about mixing them together. Well, I did it and it was like they were made for each other. What do you know, I made a love connection between two strangers in my fridge! The result was a creamy, delicious spread that’s perfect to put on bagels, toast or even crackers. Keep a small batch of it in a small bowl (it should keep for a few weeks if you can resist eating it that long) and any time you’re banging your head against the wall about what to make the kids for lunch, you’ll be totally ahead of the game!
Sun Dried Tomato Cream Cheese Spread
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1/2 cup oil-packed sun dried tomatoes drained
- Place the sun dried tomatoes in the food processor and blend till chopped fine.
- Add the cream cheese and puree.
- Spread on sandwich (I like to add a few leaves of fresh basil) and serve.
