French Quarter Cheese Dip

Total Time: 20 Minutes

What You'll Need:

  • 1 block of cream cheese, softened (8 ounces)

  • 1 tbsp. grated onion

  • 1 clove minced garlic

  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed

  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar

  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

  • 1/2 tsp. spicy brown mustard

  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted

  • Any kind of crackers you like!

What to do:

In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, garlic, and onion. Spread onto a small plate, cover, and refrigerate so it can firm up while you prepare the topping.

In a small saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard. Cook and stir over medium heat until the brown sugar melts completely.

Toast your pecans in a small pan over medium heat until you can smell them.

Remove the sauce from the heat, add your toasted pecans, and stir to coat. Let it sit to cool for just a bit.

When you're ready to serve, spoon the sauce over the cheese mixture. Serve with any kind of crackers you like. My favorite is Ritz crackers!

Now sit back and watch everyone devour this dip!
