Mule's fake smoked cream cheese with seasoned crackers.

  1. This makes a nice appatiser. They don't have to be made together. For the cream cheese i use 2 packages of softened cream cheese, 1 package of liptons dry onion soup mix, crushed red pepper to taste, 3 slices of crumbled cooked bacon and a couple of large dashes of liquid smoke. Mix well and refredgerate over nite. I have also added 2/3 cup of finlly sheaded smoked ceese in the past.
    Now for the crackers. I use 2 sleeves of crackers, stood up in a resealable container. I mix 1/2 cup EVOO with half a package of ranch dressing mix, crushed red pepper to taste. Then pour over crackers and seal for at least 12 hours.
    You can use this together or by their selves.
    Happy smoken.

    Looks tasty, gonna have to try this.

    How bout cold smoking the cream cheese?
  3. Cold smok8ng the cream cheese is better. I came up with this a few years back when i didn't have time to cold sm9ke it and let it rest. Since it is the day before Thanksgiving their isn't time for the rest so I figured i would share the fake way.
    Happy smoken.
  4. That looks great David, do the crackers not get soggy?

    I did some smoked cream cheese with smoked salmon mixed into it last year, need to try that again!
  5. You would think that the crackers would get soggy. However after the rest they soak up the mix and are crispy.

    Happy smoken.

  6. Will have to give this a try David, thanks!

    Happy Thanksgiving Day!

    Orville Redenbacher has a buttery popcorn oil that I mix 1/2 bottle with a bag of oyster crackers, then 1/2 envelope of dry ranch dressing on oyster crackers. Mix up well, Keep in the freezer in ziplock, they're addictive!!
    Might be a good substitution on the crackers with your cream cheese dip...
    Also, I don't rest the cc like hard cheeses, Never had any issues.

    Good luck!!
