I love the cream cheese appetizer at the Dodo Restaurant in Salt Lake. Every time I go there, it is a must. Something about the combo of cream cheese and the salty soy sauce is rather addicting. Combine that with the crunchy toasted taste of the sesame seeds and you hit the jackpot.
The nice thing about this is that it is so easy and you usually have the ingredients on hand. Give this a try and it will be your new favorite appetizer or snack. Great timing with the holidays coming (fast, like really fast, like my eye is twitching fast)
PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Place room temperature cream cheese in a shallow bowl. Poke holes in the cream cheese with a fork. Pour the soy sauce over the cream cheese; let stand several minutes.
PRESS sesame seed evenly into all sides of cream cheese. Remove cream cheese from bowl; place on ovenproof serving plate.
BAKE 15 minutes. Serve warm with your favorite crackers, or pear and apple slices
Thanks to No Biggie blog for photo. I really need to have camera stored in kitchen to prevent missed photo shoots of recipes. One day I will have it all together–only if some day there is less to have together!!!!
