Tasty Beef and Pickle Dip

Are you a pickle person?  I am REALLY a pickle person.  So much so, that sometimes, when I go to Jimmy John’s, I don’t order a sandwich, I just get one of their big pickles.  It can be embarrassing.  Sometimes I’ll pull a hat down over my eyes and use the drive-thru.

Pickle person that I am, this dip, a take-off on the old ham/cream cheese/pickle rolls-ups from the seventies, was a welcome addition to my repertoire of dip recipes.  It is very easy, must be made a day ahead, and besides being a great dip, it is also tasty in the morning when spread on a toasted bagel.

Tasty Beef and Pickle Dip

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 2-ounce packages of Buddig dried beef, chopped
4 dill pickle spears, drained, finely chopped (I use Claussen)
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
2 tablespoons sour cream

Combine all ingredients and mix well.  Spoon into serving dish, cover with plastic wrap, and store in the refrigerator for 12-24 hours.

Serve chilled or at room temperature with the cracker of your choice.

Hey, Pattie!

This looks delicious.

I like the combo of flavors you shared here in this dish.

I have been MIA because I have been under the weather. Sorry I have not been posting, but I am finally back in posting form!

Hah - Yes I am a pickle person too. Not as much as my mom, though. She goes through a few jars a week. This dip looks great! Stopping by from the Wonderful Wed. Blog Hop. Have a good week :)
