So Good It Could Become The Texas State Dip

“You don’t need a silver fork to eat good food.”

Paul Prudhomme

A good dip is a true crowd pleaser. They are deliciously filling and the perfect way to start any meal, and you don’t even need a fork. Although if you use a knife to spread our dip on crackers, we won’t hold it against you.

We’ve been making this dip for many years from Linda’s own recipe. Linda is our Master Gardener and Head Chef at Eden Hill (and a Co-Owner) and she loves to cook…and serve…good food. Make some Gouda Pecan Dip and grab some friends and family to share it with. No forks needed.


2 packages of 8 oz cream cheese
2/3 cup mayonnaise
8 oz grated smoked gouda cheese
1/2 cup toasted pecans, finely chopped

1/2 stick of goat cheese
1 teaspon sugar
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
Juice of 1/2 lemon
