Happy Happy Monday everybody!!! It is now officially one of the best times of the year…Football Season! and yes, I like to treat this particular season as one big holiday. Obvi, I love football (Go Falcons!), but it’s not just the game, football to me is the beginning of Fall, which encompasses some of my absolute favorite things; beautiful trees, pumpkin baked goods, cinnamon in everything, cooler temps and of course Halloween.
Y’all, I will totally have my office decorated for Halloween September 1st, no shame here. Anyways, so with the onset of my favorite season comes the need for lots of dips, because watching a football game without some sort of chip & dip combo is just unacceptable. I am basically always on the lookout for a new dip to try, and honestly the easier the better in most cases #lazyonacheatday. This particular dip has popped up in my feed for forever, with a number of different names with varying ingredients, but for the most part there have been 5 or less ingredients in most of them, which is just perfect.
For such a simple and un-fancy dip, I can only assume it’s called the Neiman Marcus Dip due to them serving it at some point? I really have no idea, all I know is that this dip was thrown together in about 5 minutes and is spectacularly delicious, I mean how could it not be with all of that mayonnaise & cheese in it? I did make one slight little change in this recipe by swapping out the green onions (which I just cannot stand) with the dried Parsley.
Also, the next time I make this dip, I will swap out the basic shredded cheddar with finely shredded cheddar-which I made note of in the recipe card-so it will blend more smoothly. If you’re looking for something easy and delicious to make for your football watching pleasure or maybe some Game of Thrones viewing, I think this one will be right up your alley. I hope everyone has a wonderful day and thank you so much stopping by!
