Last week was our first football Saturday, and I made some dips for the day.
I have made these dips before, but wanted to talk about them separately again here. All three are simple and use mayo. The middle dip is pimento cheese with 2 cups of shredded cheddar, 1 small jar of chopped pimentos with juice, a pinch of crushed red pepper, 1 teaspoon of ground mustard, and about a cup of mayo. I do the mayo last as the juice and cheese dictate how moist it will be.
Artichoke and crab dip: 1 can artichokes in water – chopped, 2 cans of crab meat-drained (whatever kind of crab that is your preference), ground pepper, 1 cup of parmesan (and more to cover the top), lemon juice and about a cup of mayo. Again, I add the mayo at the end and may or may not use the entire cup. Mix together, sprinkle extra cheese on top, and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until cheese is golden brown on top.
And my favorite at the moment is Million Dollar Dip as you mix it together and serve at room temperature. Nothing to heat, and still creamy. It has a cup of the following: slivered almonds, chopped green onions, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped-crispy bacon and mayo. Super simple and so yummy.You can serve all of these with pita chips, tortilla chips, celery, , sliced bell peppers, cucumbers or toasted baguettes. Really anything or nothing at all. Fall, Saturday’s, football, and dips–can’t get any better. Well, maybe with a cookie or two?
