Pampered Chef: Chip & Dip

    I have a great use for the chip and dip!

    Yesterday, DH and I hosted our parents for a Fathers Day barbecue. We were having bratwurst and hamburgers, so of course we had to have toppings. I didn't want to bother with lots of little bowls around the table, because they're a pain to carry out (there's no direct route from my kitchen to the backyard; I have to go through the garages or through the house and the Florida Room).

    Chip & Dip to the rescue!

    I diced a couple of small onions and filled the dip cup. Then I placed 2 small plastic bowls in the large area to hold pickle slices and caramelized onions. Fill the rest of the large area with tomato slices and lettuce leaves, and it's an all-in-one easy to pass toppings tray! :)

    Of course, I forgot to take a picture to post here. :rolleyes:

    Excellent! I'll add that to my suggestion of using it as a snack tray.

    Thanks Ann for sharing. I had thought about using it for things like that too. It does make a lot of sense and hopefully oohs and aahs and SALES!!!!!!!

    I call mine the "man bowl". The dip holder will also hold most cups without them easily tipping out and the main part we affectionately call the "trough". Woman love it for their men who aren't supposed to eat at the couch but we all know they do anyway :)
