Dill Dip in a Bread Bowl

Oh Dill Dip, how I love thee 🥰!


Just in time for Super Bowl 🏈 and munchie festivities, I’m bringing you a more classic recipe than you found my original Dill DipI mean, don’t get me wrong, adding lemon and yogurt is equally delicious and comforting, but today I kept it simple with sour cream, mayonnaise, fresh dill, seasoned salt, dried parsley and onion flakes.  And to top it all off, I added it to a pumpernickel bread bowl.

In my last post, I spoke about the endless dippers for dill dip.  Crudités and the bread bites are a must in my opinion, but you could also opt for crackers, pita, or chips.

Two more notes I’ll make:

  1. This dip is best if left in the refrigerator overnight to chill because it allows the ingredients to come together and I don’t know about you, but I love what happens to dried minced onions when you leave a dip to chill overnight 😋.
  2. Fresh dill is fantastic and I always opt for fresh.  Of course dried dill will work well is probably what we all grew up with.  Just take to these proportions: one tablespoon of fresh dill weed for every teaspoon of dried dill, so for this recipe, you’ll need 4tsp of dried dill.

I hope you enjoy it and if you try my version, please let me know 🙏!
