I have a weakness. I love eating crackers with spreads, all sorts of spreads. It’s a weakness I’ve had since I was a young girl and one that I’ve passed on to my kids. One of our favorite spreads is my Asiago Parmesan Cheese Spread Recipe, which was inspired by the Temecula Olive Oil Company’s “Ahhh Sooo Good Oh! Asiago Parmesan Cheese Dip”.

Asiago Parmesan Cheese Spread

Since the olive oil company is a family-owned local business, I would often pop into the local shop when I had my monthly cravings for a salty snack. Then it happened…Sold Out! Nooooo! I was REALLY looking forward to eating this dip that I could almost taste it. What was I to do?! Make my own version, of course!

Asiago Parmesan Cheese Dip

Asiago Parmesan Cheese Spread Spices


  • 8oz. Parmesan or Parmesan/Romano cheese, shredded
  • 6oz. Asiago cheese, shredded
  • Dried parsley
  • Crushed red pepper flakes
  • Crushed garlic
  • Dried oregano
  • Onion powder
  • Basil
  • Dried thyme, finely chopped
  • Tarragon
  • Dill
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt (optional)


I’ve made this spread quite a few times over the years and I think this final recipe is one that I’m pleased with. I know my kids like it because they can eat the whole batch in about two to three days. If your spread lasts longer than that, it should keep in the refrigerator for at least two weeks or more. Making this spread is really easy.

Asiago Parmesan Cheese Spread in Blender

Step 1. All you need to do is shred all the cheese, dump it into a food processor, add the spices and pulse the mixture several times until everything is well mixed.

Asiago Parmesan Cheese Spread with Olive OIl

Step 2. Put the mix into a bowl, add olive oil and stir until the olive oil is well incorporated. Next, place the mix into a container and chill for at least 24 hours to let all the flavors meld together. The longer this spread sits, the better it tastes.

Asiago Parmesan Cheese Spread on Crackers

Step 3. Serve! You can spread this onto crackers, use on roasted veggies, or toss with pasta and fresh tomatoes. It’s so yummy! My youngest daughter has even created her own topping by adding this cheese spread to fresh chopped garden tomatoes and eating it with toast – her new Bruschetta with Tomato and Asiago Parmesan Cheese snack.

  3. I’m the same way – give me crackers and/or veggies and a dip and I’m in heaven. I can hardly wait to try your Asiago Parmesan Cheese Spread! It looks so tasty.

  4. YUM! My boyfriend also has the “affliction” of loving crackers and dips…but he usually goes out and buys expensive ones. This one sounds so good that I need to make it! I have a feeling this isn’t going to make it 2 weeks at all haha 🙂 Did you get the recipe from the company or did you just create it on your own? I’m helpless at recreating recipes by taste only!
