Have you ever had a rye boat dip? You take a round loaf of pumpernickel bread and create a bowl in the center and and fill it with dill dip with or without chipped beef. Then, you would use the cut-up bread to eat the dip. Well, I love those and I still make them occasionally for parties or on a football Sunday because the boyfriend loves it too.
Every time I make it, I need to look up recipes because I lost the recipe that my mom originally gave me. I have to recreate the recipe every time by looking at different recipes online. That’s one of the great things about having a blog- not only do I get to share my recipes with you, but I have a centralized place to look up all my family’s/favorite recipes.
When I was in World Market the other day (umm, my favorite store right after Target and Marshall’s,) I found pumpernickel pretzels by Utz. I had the genius idea of making dill dip to go with these pretzels to taste like a rye boat dip. The results were awesome and we can’t get enough of the pumpernickel pretzels. We actually pack a serving in our lunches everyday (without the dill dip.) Can’t find these pretzels? Make a pumpernickel boat and fill it with dill dip or just dip slices of cut-up veggies in it.
