Delicious PC Pantry Bread Dip Ideas for Your Open House

I'm having an open house and am making the beer bread. I would like to have a bread dip that's made w/ PC pantry stuff. Any ideas??

Otherwise, I could my Tastefully Simple dips, but I'm just trying to keep it all PC!!!
I always use a dip from our Farmers Market Seasoning Set to go withy our beer bread. I love them all!
dips for breadAll the spices have dip recipes on the back. I love the Southwest Seasoning and the Dill dips. YUMMY!

Below are some recipes for dips that would go well with bread.

Roasted Garlic & Red Pepper Dip

2 whole heads garlic, unpeeled
1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1" wedges
1 tsp olive oil
1 pack (8 oz) fat free cream cheese, softened
1/2 c fat free sour cream
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp rosemary herb seasoning mix

Preheat oven to 425. Slice about 1/4 inch from top of each garlic head to expose garlic cloves. Place in center of deep dish baker; surround with bell pepper wedges. Spray garlic and bell pepper with olive oil using kitchen spritzer; cover with aluminum foil. Bake 40-45 minutes or until garlic is soft; cool completly.

Place cream cheese in small batter bowl; microwave on high 30 seconds until softened. Whisk vigorously until smooth using stainless steel whisk.

Remove skin from bell pepper; finely chop using food chopper. Squeeze garlic cloves from papery skin into batter bowl. Add bell pepper, sour cream, lemon juice and seasoning mix; mix well. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour to allow flavors to blend.

Yields: 1 1/2 cups (serves 12)

2. Chop crabmeat using Food Chopper. Grate Swiss cheese using Deluxe Cheese Grater. Thinly slice green onions using Utility Knife. Dice bell pepper using Chef's Knife. Using Juicer, juice lemon to measure 1 tablespoon juice. Add crabmeat, Swiss cheese, green onions, bell pepper, lemon juice and hot pepper sauce to batter bowl; mix well.

Cook's Tip: Substituting reduced-fat (Neufchâtel) cream cheese and light mayonnaise for the cream cheese and mayonnaise reduces the calories to 150 and total fat to 10 grams per serving. If desired, 2 cans (6 ounces each) white crabmeat, drained and flaked, can be substituted for the imitation crabmeat. Cut shapes from red bell pepper using Creative Cutters for an attractive garnish.

Hi there! I'm so excited to hear that you're having an open house and making the beer bread - it's always a crowd favorite! As for a bread dip made with PC pantry items, I have a few ideas for you. One option is our Spinach and Herb Seasoning mixed with cream cheese and sour cream for a delicious and easy dip. You could also try our Garlic and Herb Rub mixed with olive oil for a flavorful and simple dip. Another idea is to mix our Roasted Garlic Infused Oil with our Italian Seasoning for a tasty dipping oil. I hope these suggestions help and keep the focus on all things PC at your open house. Happy cooking!
