Do you remember the old family gatherings and church picnics? The huge variety of yummy treats that are displayed for everyone to pick from? We are just starting to get back to fun events like that in this post-covid world.
I drool thinking about my mom’s blueberry salad, aunt Fern’s beet pickles, and Grandma Winny’s oven-baked beans. Add in all the deviled eggs, BBQ meatballs, and pickle roll-ups, and I would be in heaven.
Why do we love pickle rollups?
Because they’re the perfect blend of salty and sweet, with a little crunch. It is one of those things that we love to eat but rarely take the time to make ourselves.
Rolled pickle dip takes all that and wraps it up in a nice, neat delicious dip package. It really does make for one of the best dip recipes.
What would you serve rolled pickle dip with?
We recommend using this as an appetizer, served with your favorite cracker, chips, or even veggies. It’s the perfect way to start a party! Our favorite crackers? Ritz – we just love that buttery goodness, and they are perfect with this easy dip recipe.
Now that we’ve got you drooling let’s get to the recipe.
What kind of pickles should I use?
For this recipe, I like to use dill pickles. However, you could use any type of pickle that you like. My favorite brand is Milwaukee. They are consistent in both flavor and texture.
What do you need to make Rolled Pickle Dip?
- Baby Dill Pickles. I go with the Milwaukee brand. You will need to drain it and then save a little of the pickle juice.
- Dried Beef. This comes in jars in the grocery section. Look by the tuna, etc.
- Cream cheese. Make sure you use a name brand and do not go with low fat. For best results, it should be full fat cream cheese and at room temperature.
- Green Onions. These would be sliced and sprinkled over the top as a garnish and for a splash of color. We opted not to use them today.
That is it! This 3-ingredient wonder makes for a fun and frugal treat. Those months we find cash flow challenging and are still invited to a get-together? This is usually our go-to grab.
How to Make Our Easy Dill Pickle Dip
In a medium bowl, combine your 8 ounces of soft cream cheese, that drained 12-ounce jar of baby dill chopped pickles, and 2 ounces of dry beef – chopped.
Mix the ingredients until well-combined. Give it a quick taste. If you want, stir in a little pickle juice into that cream cheese mixture to give it a tad more zip. You won’t need anything like garlic powder, which is usually already in that brine.
Cover with plastic wrap and chill until ready to serve your creamy dill pickle dip.
How do you store leftover Rolled Pickle Dip?
You can store the dip in the fridge for up to a week. When you are ready to serve, remove it from the fridge and let it come to room temperature. Serve with crackers or chips of your choice. We love Ritz, but any cracker should do.
