I know I’ve talked about this before but I’m still obsessed with watching old seasons of Top Chef. The other day we were watching and I was all “man, he added so much heat to that soup it’s going to blow out their palate when they eat that.” Ok, Brandy – SIMMER. DOWN.

Blow out their palate? Who says that? Well, apparently me because I’m sure I heard it on Top Chef. However, to be fair I was totally right. You can’t be throwing in tons of peppers and expect someone to taste anything but the hot ass pepper. I’m not really sure what that has to do with this roasted berry cream cheese spread but it must be said.

You know what won’t blow out your palate? This roasted berry cream cheese spread. How is that for a segue way? Not great, I know. I should probably not write a book titled “how to make awesome segue ways” anytime soon. Am I right?

I made this cream cheese spread because I’m honestly tired of seeing the store bought stuff everywhere. I see every flavor imaginable on the store shelves BUT it’s so easy to make yourself! To be fair I bought the regular cream cheese and just flavored it up naturally. I’m assuming you could make your own cream cheese BUT I have about zero clue on how to do that. Plus, I think cream cheese is an ok kitchen shortcut.

I also made this delicious cream cheese spread because I teamed up with Udi’s Gluten Free again to showcase off their super awesome BAGELS! Can we talk about how much I love bagels? Sweet or savory I will take them in any way you serve them! AND since their bagels are gluten free all your gluten free loved ones can’t partake in the tradition of trying to put as much cream cheese as possible on your bagel.

Oh and this delicious spread is ready in UNDER 30 minutes so you can go from sad regular cream cheese to delicious roasted berry cream cheese in no time!

Roasted Berry Cream Cheese Spread

This roasted berry cream cheese spread is the perfect topping to your morning bagel or as a delicious fruit dip. Ready in under 30 minutes and packed full of sweet berry flavor. You'll want to this spread on everything!

Yield: 2 cups cream cheese spread

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup quartered strawberries
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1-2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 16 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Add strawberries and blueberries to the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with dark brown sugar. Toss to combine. Roast for about 15 minutes or until the berries are slightly soft. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Once the berries are cool (it won't take too long) add cream cheese to the bowl of an electric mixer and beat for a minute just to get it fluffy. Add in the berries and mix for a few minutes or until the berries are fully combined into the cream cheese. Make sure to stop once to scrape down the sides.

Keep the roasted berry cream cheese spread in the refrigerator until ready to use.
