Blustery Pre-Game Day Prep

Blustery Pre-Game Day Prep

So this blustery, damp Saturday finds me in our shop in what is normally sunny Surprise, AZ working through the oddities (known as ‘enhancements’) to the newest USPS system installed this past Thursday.  And, I’m chilled to the bone looking at our newest NFL dip dishes thinking about what we’re going to be munching on tomorrow.

Being a native Buffaloanian, I’ve decided its going to be a baked Buffalo Chicken & Blue Cheese Dip using a portion of a packet our Halladay’s Harvest Barn dip  of the same name (available here at Gifts To Go for $3.75 a packet or three packets chosen from a selection of 9 varieties for $11).

The recipe is quite simple and with a quick stop at my local Fry’s for a roasted chicken and a few easy pantry items, it will be a  cinch.  Mix following ingredients and bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until bubbling:

  • 1 cup cooked chicken
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (maybe mozzarella or cheddar or monterey jack or as I do a mixture of whatever’s in the fridge)
  • 2 TBSP Halladay’s Buffalo Chicken & Blue Cheese Dip
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup mayo
  • if desired, garnish with crumbled blue cheese and/or sliced green onions.buff-halladaysbaked-chicken-dip

Great with baguette slices or celery or pita crisps or taco chips or…  Enjoy!

Cheddar Ale Dip

Starting to receive our spring merchandise and it’s almost as exciting as Christmas time. One of our new items is a real tasty treat, Cheddar Ale Dip, new flavor from Halladay’s Harvest Barn but despite the package note, they didn’t include recipes.

Darn. Halladay’s products are great as dips and super good as seasoning mixes for a wide variety of foods. I’ve tested the Cheddar Ale Dip with with veggies and hearty crackers and easily endorse it. Dip is standard mix of mayo and sour cream.

But it begs to be more than just a ‘dip’. So, we’re sponsoring a Recipe Contest.

Your Challenge: Create a winning recipe using Cheddar Ale Dip and we’ll publish it in upcoming Gifts To Go newsletter and our blog post.

Not only does the winner gain some notoriety and a few accolades from friends, family and readers, but there are prizes to be won, too:

All Halladay’s mixes are resealable containing enough mix for several uses. All Halladay’s dips are priced at $3.50 each or 3/$10.00 and available online and in-store.

Contest Deadline: Friday, February 7

Entries will be recreated by a team of judges, tasted and winner announced by late February.

Best to you as you create the next best Gifts To Go recipe
