A quick and easy appetizer for a tailgaiting party or any get together. It’s one of the most popular appetizers served at Lee Ann Miller’s, Miller House Bed and Breakfast in Ohio’s Amish Country.
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1/8 teaspoon of garlic salt
1 heaping tablespoon of finely minced purple onion
1/4 cup of butter
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon of yellow mustard
1 cup of roasted and salted pecan pieces
Mix cream cheese, garlic salt and onion together until light and fluffy.
Then, take a 2-3 inch cookie baller and scoop cream cheese mixture into the center of a serving plate. Using a teaspoon, make an indentation in each ball to hold the sauce.
Heat butter, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard in saucepan until ingredients are completely combined. Do not boil!
Remove mixture from heat, and stir in nuts.
Cool slightly and pour over cream cheese mixture.
Serve with crackers.Thanks to Lee Ann Miller at the Miller Haus B & B
