French Quarter Dip

This delicious dip is interesting with a nice contrast of flavors and textures. It is both sweet and savory, creamy and crunchy. A party-perfect dip. We enjoyed it tonight as a part of our New Year's Eve get-together.

This is very easy to prepare. Toasting the pecans is not a must if you're in a hurry.

Give it a try.


1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon grated onion
1 garlic clove, minced

1/4 cup butter, cubed
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
1 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted

Assorted crackers

In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, onion and garlic. Transfer to a serving dish. Set aside. In a small saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and mustard. Cook and stir over medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat; stir in pecans.  Cool slightly. Spoon over cheese mixture. Serve with crackers. 

Makes about 8-10 servings.
