I was making braised short rib risotto on Christmas, but wanted to put out some snacks beforehand. I had a Costco cheese flight that everyone has been raving about (yes, it was amazing), along with some salami and cherry honey. I thought a warm dip would be nice to serve, too, but this was a little last minute and it’s not like I could go to the store. I had a block of cream cheese and a bunch of shredded cheddar cheese, which always makes a solid foundation for a dip. I rummaged around in the pantry and found the onion dip packet. I warned everyone that this dip was highly experimental and they didn’t have to pretend to like it. Thankfully my boyfriend, mom, and friends have gotten used to my food experiments! But the dip was actually good, so that wasn’t a problem anyway. We served it with crackers, but it would be really good with kettle chips, too.
