So how’s everyone doing on their New Year’s resolutions? If this blog is any indication, me? Probably not so great. But hey, it was the Super Bowl last week and I made this dip…
This is the dip of many names: ABC (almond, bacon, cheddar), Neiman Marcus Dip, Million Dollar Dip, One Million Dollar Dip. Well, you get the idea.
What IS it? A handful of ingredients that meld together into one glorious taste explosion. The one secret? It’s not really good the first day. It’s seriously mediocre. Million Dollar Dip shines the next day when everything comes together in some kind of magical alchemy.
This dip is mayo based, but I add a touch of cream cheese to add just a little substance. I like to cook up bacon for this, but in a pinch you could use bacon bits – the real ones, or the precooked bacon.
Any holiday week is likely to have great sales, and the Super Bowl is no exception – and if you’re into indulging in chips, crackers, and all the accompaniments that go right along with the biggest game day ever, it’s a great time to buy and stock up. Me, I’m getting back to my healthy eating plan…maybe after I make something sweet for Valentine’s day, lol!
