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 have to say, when I made this last night, it didn’t taste as good. I read your strong recommendation to chill it overnight before eating, and I did that. I also added a tsp of dill seed (I didn’t have any regular dill).That did the trick. But tonight it’s great. My adult kids wanted to try it. They almost ate all of it! It’s so good.

    I made this last night, but I over-processed the cucumbers and the finished product wasn’t thick enough.
    So I tossed it with some pasta shells, shrimp, salmon, corn, red bell pepper, red onion, broccoli, cauliflower, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt and black pepper for a filling but light meal. Delish! Thanks for the recipe! I’ll focus on *not* over-processing next time.

    My mother is lactose intolerant so I made this with a non-dairy cream cheese. It was delicious and everyone asked me for the recipe. Thank you!

    1. Hi Deborah! Thanks so much for mentioning about the non dairy cream cheese! So many people ask on recipes about substitutes and I’m not always sure what will taste good or what won’t so I appreciate that extra bit of info! So happy everyone enjoyed it!
