Game Day #5: Zesty Broccoli Dip

Happy Friday!

The weekend is finally here and I am ready to get my football party-ing on. There's only a few days left until the big game, and I'm kicking off the weekend with a zesty dip perfect for game time.

Whenever I make this Broccoli Dip for Mr. B and I, it's gone before it has the chance to cool down. (Which leaves us with scalded tongues, but it's soooo worth it. Honestly, we don't mind not being able to taste anything else for the rest of the day.)

And this dip is feisty.

The red pepper flakes add a nice little kick, and you'll feel it right in the back of your throat. Oh, it's nice. Mr. B is in love. He enjoys some heat. Which makes this dish nice because you can add as much or as little heat as you want. Or you can skip the red pepper flakes altogether if you're not a fan of the spice.
Zesty Broccoli Dip

Yields: About 3 cups total

1 c Light Miracle Whip
10 oz frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and well drained
1/2 c grated Parmesan cheese
1 c shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
red pepper flakes
crackers, pita chips, veggies, etc. for dipping

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Combine Miracle Whip, broccoli, Parmesan cheese, 1/2 c mozzarella, and desired amount of red pepper flakes in a bowl. Spread into 1-qt baking dish or 9" pie plate. Bake 20-25 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella. Continue baking 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve warm.

We're so close to the end, so don't forget to check back tomorrow for another Super Bowl Party menu idea!

With Love and God Bless,
