What to do with leftover cheese bits!
Any left-over cheese at room temperature
1/4 cup dry white wine - to one pound of cheese
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened - to one pound of cheese
2 tablespoons fresh parsley leaves to taste
1 garlic clove or to taste
You may use any left-over cheese you wish, such as Cheddar, Parmesan, Provolone, Fontina, Mozzarella, Camembert, Brie. Make sure that you use a combination that is not too salty.
Remove any rind from hard cheeses. Grate hard cheeses and cut others into 1/2-inch cubes. Place cheese, wine, butter, herbs, and garlic in a food processor and blend until smooth, approximately 2 minutes.
This can be served immediately or refrigerated for at least 1 hour for a firmer consistency. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Use as a dip - spread - or put on bread toasted on one side and toast under the grill for a very different toasted cheese.
