|Cream Cheese & Dried Beef Dip|
I don't even know what the official name of this recipe is, but I know I love it. One of my colleagues at Clive Elementary makes this once or twice a year for various staff luncheons, birthdays, what have you. She brings a huge bowl of the stuff alongside a huge bowl of bagel pieces that she has lovingly cut into bite-sized pieces for us to devour over the course of the day. And devour it we do.
I finally got the recipe and made it myself, and oh my goodness. I need to limit myself to once or twice a year with this recipe too, because it's addicting. One recipe is plenty, but if you're making it for a crowd, I suggest making a recipe and a half. That way, you ensure leftovers for yourself. What you see pictured above is actually a half recipe.
Cream Cheese and Dried Beef Dip
- 2 packages cream cheese (8 oz. each)
- 16 oz. sour cream
- 1 teaspoon dry dill weed
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder (not garlic salt, but garlic POWDER)
- 1 (5 oz.) jar Hormel dried beef*, chopped up
- 6-8 plain bagels, sliced and cut into 8ths or 12ths.
Mix the first five ingredients together, refrigerate, and serve with bagels.
*Dried beef is also sold in 2.5 oz. packages in the prepackaged deli meat section of some grocery stores.
