Roasted Garlic Dip Mix
- You could spend hours baking whole garlic cloves, peeling the skins, and squeezing the caramelized pulp out to create this same flavor, but why? Get the same gourmet flavor with this unique dip in a fraction of the time. This versatile roasted garlic dip mix can be prepared either baked or chilled and served alone with vegetables, chips, crackers, or toasted slices of French bread. Try adding the flavor packet to ordinary recipes. Also makes a great cheese ball.
Chilled Directions: Mix contents with 1 cup sour cream and ¾ cup mayonnaise. Chill for several hours for best flavor.
Baked Directions: Blend 8 oz cream cheese, ½ cup cottage cheese, ½ cup mayonnaise, 1 T lemon juice, 1 T melted butter, and ¼ cup of cream. Fold in ½ cup of grated mozzarella cheese and dip mix. Bake in greased shallow brown. Add spinach, crab meat, or shrimp for variety.
Delectable Cheeseball Recipe: Blend together three 8 ounce packages of cream cheese (at room temperature), two packages of Roasted Garlic Dip Mix (or your favorite Delectable Addictions gourmet dip mix), 1 cup of mayonnaise, 1 cup of cottage cheese, and 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Divide into three equal portions and form into round balls. Roll the balls in your favorite chopped nuts (We like pecans or walnuts). Seal in plastic wrap and chill overnight (this allows the spices from the dip mix to infuse into the cheese). Remove the plastic wrap and let warm for about an hour before serving. Serve with crackers, chips, or toasted artisan bread. It is best to slice with a knife and spread rather that dipping directly into the cheeseball.
Ingredients: Onion, salt, garlic, red & green bell pepper, chili pepper, spices. No MSG or autolyzed yeast extract.
