Superbowl Cheese Dip


This isn’t calorie or waist friendly and isn’t very pretty but boy is it tasty. I’ve always thought that the reason that non-football loving people like to watch the Superbowl is that it makes an excellent excuse to spend an entire afternoon eating greasy food. At The Husband’s request I made this dip for Superbowl Sunday and we both happily gobbled it up while watching the game.


The ingredients: Cheddar cheese


Mayo. Not the travesty that is Miracle Whip.


Softened cream cheese. Notice how I used light cream cheese and light mayo? Every little bit helps, people!


The cheese, mayo and cream cheese (I used more or less the same amount of each) went into an ovenproof pan along with chopped green onions, English mustard, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Hot dips are pretty forgiving in terms of the proportions between the cheeses and the mayo. You really can just eyeball everything and not screw up.


After mixing everything together I smoothed it out and put it into the oven at 350 Celsius.


I checked on it after 15 minutes but decided to put it back so it would be more bubbly.


After 25 minutes it was perfect. This picture is courtesy of the husband since I was cooking something else at the time so he was the one who actually took it out of the oven. He has a thing with overhead shots for some reason but is a sweetheart for getting dragged over often to take pictures of food.


Tortilla chips are pretty much a prerequisite for eating this. This is cheesy, hot and savoury and is perfect party food. I really need to find an excuse to make this again soon! Tags:
