This is actually a recipe from Alton Brown that I make quite often. It is on the Food network website, so I guess that's public domain and I can reprint it here.
I often have wine & cheese parties at my house and there is usually leftover small bits of cheese to deal with. That is what makes this recipe so great; it is so versatile that you can use any combination of cheeses. It may never taste the exact same way twice, but it always comes out great. In fact, I am making some tonight. This can be served on crackers, and I've found it is also great on baked potatoes. I have yet to include some smoked cheese, but I bet that would be fantastic.

Alton Brown's Fromage Fort

1 lb. leftover cheese, room temperature
1/4 C. dry white wine
3 T. unsalted butter, softened
2 T. fresh parsley leaves
1 small garlic clove

Remove any rinds from hard cheeses. Grate hard cheeses and cut others into 1/2-inch cubes. Place ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth, aprox 2 minutes. Serve immediately or refrigerate for at least 1 hour for a firmer consistancy. This can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Butterbean's pimento cheese spread thread made me wonder if I had ever shared this recipe. I guess I did. I make this a few times a year and never get tired of it.

I like cheese spread on crackers. I used to hooked on the red wine cheddar.
