CUCUMBER CRACK RECIPE

Cucumber Cream Cheese Spread is perfect for bagels or crackers. Fresh cucumbers, green onions, Worcestershire sauce and cream cheese. If you are a fan of bagels and cream cheese or if you like to snack on crackers with some creamy goodness smeared on top then you will really enjoy this spread. It’s very similar to Benedictine spread (just not as thin.) My friend Patti calls it “Cucumber Crack.” Ha!

IS IT LOW CARB OR KETO-FRIENDLY?

I make this quite often for myself and my girlfriends. It is great to snack on or you can make a meal with it by spreading it on a lightly toasted bagel and having it for lunch. It’s also a refreshing appetizer. And yes, it is low carb! My low carb friends enjoy eating it on low carb tortillas or even on zucchini slices.

    I’m on sodium restricted diet so I just leave out the salt & Worcestershire sauce I use dried dill. Just for fun I’ve used Whipped chive cream cheese instead of a block of reg cream cheese it made it nice & spreadable a bit of lemon juice brightens the flavor & is a nice sub for the salt

  2. Use this in a BLT. Go all out and use candied bacon. I’ve been known to lick the drips on my arms it’s so good.

    I have made this twice. The last time I made it was for girls movie night. They really liked it and asked for the recipe. Really good! I served it with Captains Wafers crackers. Will definitely make again.

    i loved it…but since my family is watching salt intake i substituted the salt for dill and it was amazing. i loved it and passed the end result along with the original and my additions on to a neighbor who came back for more of a sampling. so i think this is a big hit. thanks for a wonderful recipe now im off to buy a food processor.

  7. I’m from Kentucky and this is very similar to a spread we call “Benedictine”. It’s DELISHHH!!!

    I absolutely love this recipe and so does my family! I started making this many many years ago from a local farmers we get our produce from. He and his wife have been making this since their own kids were small but I’ve never added the worcherscire. It does make a difference!! I also add tiny bites of red peppers. It adds some color and slight sweetness. Not a lot. Just enough! Thank you for bringing it back to us! I had forgotten about it because my kids are now grown up and I haven’t fixed it in quite some time. You brought a smile to my face

    This is delicious. My mom adds 1/2 – 1 cup of chopped pecans and a little lemon juice. I am serving for a ladies happy hour this afternoon.

    Is there a timeframe of how long it should last refrigerated? Was thinking of making a couple days ahead of a lake trip.

    1. Hi Angie, I would only make it a day ahead if possible. Make sure you salt your cucumbers to draw the water out (in a colander.) Rinse them well and then chop. This will keep your spread from turning water-y as it sits in the fridge. 🙂
