Curry Chutney Spread

Curry Chutney Spread

Serves 10 as Hors d'oeuvre.

There are many variations on this, including ones that substitute smoked almonds for the bacon (a great tip for vegetarians), but this is my all-time favorite.

I often forgo the processing of the chutney - as long as your chutney isn't super-chunky, you should be able to make this without dirtying your Cuisinart!

  • 8 oz cream cheese (light or regular), at room temperature
  • 1 T curry powder
  • 8 oz mango chutney (one jar)
  • 6 strips bacon, cooked until crisp, drained, and crumbled
  • 1 bunch scallions, finely chopped

In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese with the curry powder until mixture is well-blended and smooth.

In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the chutney a few times (until lumps are gone). Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over the bottom of an 8-inch quiche or pie dish. Spread the chutney on top, then top with crumbled bacon. Add the scallions evenly to the top.

Serve with hearty crackers or small whole-grain toasts.

Spread will keep, covered in plastic wrap and stored in the fridge, for up to two days. Bring to room temperature before serving.
