Pepperoni Dip with pepperoni. cream cheese, green onions, grated cheese and crackers

My friend Tammy shared this with me, but it’s not the only reason I will remember her forever. Her last name is the same as my maiden name. She doesn’t spell it right, but I guess it doesn’t matter since she married.

Variations:

Variations to this recipe abound including the addition of bell peppers, sour cream, and Parmesan cheese, among others. For myself, I added green onions, arranging them so they would be easy for onion haters to sidestep.

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces softened cream cheese - 340 gr
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups grated Mozzarella cheese - 226 gr
  • cup pizza sauce - 83 gr
  • ½ cup pepperoni slices - halved or quartered (I use turkey for less grease)
  • 2 green onions - ends removed and thinly sliced.

Instructions
 

  • Use a food processor or mixer to combine cream cheese with seasonings. Spread cream cheese in a 9-inch glass pie plate or a 9-inch square oven-safe dish. Top with 1 cup of shredded Mozzarella. Drop pizza sauce evenly over cheese, then layer remaining cup of Mozzarella on top of sauce. Arrange pepperoni and chopped green onions on top of the cheese.
  • Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Serve hot with crackers, bagel crisps or thin slices of toasted French bread.

Another recipe I need to bookmark. I love these kinds of warm dips when my family gets together at my parents' house. This will be a fun new addition to our munchies.
