Beer cheese has been around a long time in Kentucky starting with Johnnie Allman’s snappy beer cheese and Allman’s Restaurant on the River back in the thirties! Just about everyone in Kentucky knows about his beer cheese. This is the way I make my beer cheese. It is more like a spread than a dip.2 cups or 16 ounces cheddar cheese, finely shredded (I used the already shredded cheese in the package for both the cheddar and Swiss cheese) 1 cup or 8 ounces Swiss cheese, finely shredded 1/8 to 1/4 spoonful of cayenne pepper 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce 4 to 5 drops hot sauce (can use more) 1/2 to 1 cup stale beer (Best to use regular beer and not light beer) This is best made using a food processor but you can use a mixer as well. Add all ingredients to food processor and pulse a few times; turn on and process until cheese is kind of creamy and will spread easily. If using a mixer, you can put cheese mixture in microwave for about a minute to make it easier to mix. This will keep for at least a week or longer in the refrigerator. Makes about 3 cups. Serve on crackers of your choice. Enjoy! Click to follow The Southern Lady Cooks on Facebook.

Just about everyone from the South knows about cheese straws. My Mississippi Mother-in-Law would serve these little cheese sticks when she had her lady friends over for tea or to visit. They are great to serve at parties. Cheese straws make great snacks and are good with a dip. They keep well in an airtight container in the fridge. I like them as a snack during the day when I get hungry! Children love them and they are fun to make.8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded and at room temperature 8 tablespoons butter or margarine or 1 stick, softened 1/2 teaspoon salt Pinch of cayenne 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 3 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted (Put seeds on baking sheet and toast in 325 degree oven about 10 minutes until brown) Combine all ingredients and keep mixing until you can form a ball. (I do this with my hands. It’s kind of like making sausage balls. You have to work the butter and cheese into the flour). Roll out dough as thin as possible and cut strips 4 inches long by 1/2 inch wide. Bake on ungreased baking sheet in preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes until brown. Can turn during baking. Makes about five dozen cheese sticks. Enjoy! Click to follow The Southern Lady Cooks on Facebook.
