We have a group of 3 couples that have been friends for over 15 years. In our pre-kids days, our favorite dinner to make together was appetizers. Over the years, the appetizers we made morphed. This was one that was added a few years ago and has been a hit ever since! Everywhere I take this, I always have people ask for the recipe. It’s creamy and bubbly and warm and delicious…and it’s the perfect appetizer to make for the Superbowl. You can have it made up in advance and throw it in the oven at half time for some new munchies in the second half of the game!
In a bowl, mix:
3 blocks of cream cheese
2c. grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2c. mayo
4c. finely diced vidalia onion. It doesn’t have to be vidalia, but the sweetness really makes this dip the amazing appetizer that it is!
Blend all the ingredients well and place in a 9×13 pan. When ready to bake, pop into a 350 degree oven for about 30-40 minutes. I watch it after 30 min and take it out when it’s brown and bubbly on top. Serve it with crackers (these are Everything crackers from Trader Joes. I love them).I’m working toward being a Trim Healthy Mama, so the crackers are a no no for me. (Actually, this might also have too many onions, but I decided not to care about that!) This is how I ate it tonight. I also have to admit that we ate burgers and I put mine between romaine leaves and slathered this on top. Pretty delicious! So if you’re looking for a low carb option to serve, this might be your favorite thing to eat this Superbowl Sunday!
