Recipe: Dill Pickle Dip

8 Sep

So we all have something that we know isn’t good for us but we just can’t put down. For Mr. Bacon, one of those things is Philly dill pickle dip. I am also admittedly a big fan.

Unfortunately a teeny tub of the stuff is almost FOUR DOLLARS. Insanity. Add a bag of chips on and you’re looking at a very expensive snack.

But, if you watch the flyers and buy cream cheese when it’s on sale, you’ll have it for this and other delicious recipes. For example, for the dip I used a large size (400 g) spreadable tub that I bought for less than $3.

Cream cheese, any size is fine but full fat is best
Dill pickles, finely diced
Pickle juice
Worcestershire sauce

Beat the cream cheese until it’s fluffy. Add a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce and about 3 tablespoons of juice from the pickle jar. Beat to combine. Fold in the pickles. The amount is up to you. We used about a cup.

And you’re done. That wasn’t hard, was it? It’s best when it’s allowed to chill in the fridge overnight but don’t let that stop you from digging in right away.

    You can’t buy dill pickle dip here – I’d do it for $4!!! But, to beat my random cravings for it, I made a dill pickle dip last year. This one sounds almost the same, but I don’t remember the Worcestershire sauce being in mine. I will have to dig it up because now I have a craving!!!

    In other news, we tried the peanut butter and bacon milkshake from Sonic last night JUST for you 😉 Three of us all had a few sips from a mini size so we could test it out without ordering and consuming an entire one! I liked the peanut butter flavor but the bacon in it wasn’t very bacon-y and was just kind of bothersome crispy pieces coming up the straw.

      Thank you for testing it out! I can see how the bacon pieces would be a bit sketchy in a milkshake. Do they have a sundae too?

        I am not sure if they have a sundae … I’ve only been to sonic twice, and both times was to grab milkshakes while they’ve been half off this summer! But I can see it working better as a sundae,
