Seriously. I’m not kidding. It’s a dip made out of White Castle hamburgers.

Let me tell you a little bit about how I stumbled upon this little gem here and, might I mention,


‘Tis the season of the pigskin and this little munchie is perfect for next week’s Pro Bowl and the following week’s Super Bowl.

Did I mention that the Colts will be playing in the Super Bowl?

I wish I could say I loved football but truthfully, I don’t. Here’s my interpretation of football that makes JJ cringe when I speak it out loud: a bunch of men in tight pants and big shoulders get together to toss a little ball around a huge field. Every ten seconds a whistle is blown and they all have to get together to talk for about 30 seconds. Again. The system repeats itself for almost three hours. It’s really too slow for me – I much prefer the pace of basketball and hey, being the Hoosier gal that I am, basketball is in my blood even though I don’t actually play the game.

But I will admit that I am the worst kind of fan. The bandwagon one. JJ chastises me for this with quotes such as ” Oh sure, NOW you like the Colts since they are going to the Super Bowl and all..” Well, true. But I really do like them all of the time I just don’t necessarily like football.

I do, however, enjoy the hoopla of the Super Bowl, especially when my team is in it.

But what I really love the most? The food.

I love to eat appetizers. Tapas bars (no, JJ – not topless bars. Stop the “Beavis and Butthead” laugh, please) are one of my faves. So are cheesy and gooey dips and anything that can be scooped up with a chip.

In other words, I will need to live an entire 24 hours on the elliptical on February 8. It will be worth it.

This hysterical recipe is one that admittedly, I have not tried. I’m too busy laughing at it for now. But I will get to it and whip this up because the curiosity is killing me.

It hails from a long-lost high school friend who I have reconnected with via Facebook. He was, and obviously still is, hysterically funny. We were high school newspaper editors together (he did the Sports section, I was in charge of Features) and he mentioned, after seeing one of my Mmmm Monday posts, a fact that I had long forgotten.

His mother won the North Star (name of high school paper) Mom Dessert Bake-Off and he even remembered the amazing fruit pizza that my mother had made. Did I mention this was 15 years ago? I have dumped facts like this but not my friend, Jason. He is wise like an elephant. Or is it owl? I don’t know – he’s just smart and funny and now has a darling wife and three very cute little boys.

He shared the following recipe and at the end of his message wrote “Don’t knock it until you try it.” He also stated that his wife and her friends get together for Bunco but the men gather for “Drunko”. This is what they serve.

Spicy White Castle Dip

10 White Castle hamburgers
1 (8-oz.) pkg. of cream cheese
3 White Castle Dusseldorf mustard packets
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
9 oz. of hot pepper jack cheese, chunked
2/3 cup milk
2 tbsp. parsley flakes

Mix cream cheese and mustard together and spread on bottom of large, shallow serving dish. Spread onions evenly on top of mixture. Put burgers in food processor until blended and spread evenly over onions. Cut cheese into chunks, add milk and melt in microwave for 1-2 minutes. Stir until creamy. Pour cheese mixture over burgers. Sprinkle parsley flakes on top. Heat for 3-4 minutes on high in microwave or 20 minutes in oven. Serve with a large bag of tortilla chips.

Please be sure you do not have any blockages or heart complications before eating the aforementioned dip.  I am certain it goes straight to the arteries but I’m also certain it is tasty, tasty.

Just spend Monday on the treadmill.  You’ll be fine.
