When I Dip, You Dip, We Dip…

Just dropping in to share a few easy recipes for dips. These are great for when you want a quick snack, need to take something for travel or are trying to help yourself get some extra veggies in.

The first recipe is something very Upstate NY: Rye Boat Dip. Traditionally, rye boat dip is served in a hollowed out rye bread round for dipping. Around here, almost everyone gets their dip at Wegman’s. So much so that the store chain went from having deli containers available for purchase certain times of the year, to having prepackaged containers available year round. I chose to remake this dip for two reasons; I really love rye boat dip, and it’s uniquely high in protein thanks to one of the main ingredients being dried beef.

A quick warning though; all of these recipes are pretty high in sodium. You could probably make them lower by using your own seasoning mixes instead of soup/dip mix pouches. I, however, am not only too lazy to do that but I’m also supposed to have extra sodium in my diet due to other health issues.

Ingredients

ryeboatdipnut

  • 8 oz light cottage cheese, blended until smooth
  • 2 oz light mayonnaise
  • 2 oz plain greek yogurt
  • 2 oz light sour cream
  • 2 oz dried beef, roughly chopped
  • 4 tsp dill weed
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 scoop collagen protein powder

Directions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine first 4 ingredients, mixing well to combine.
  2. Add all seasonings and collagen to this mixture and whisk well to make sure they are thoroughly mixed in.
  3. Lastly, add in the chopped dried beef and stir it through.
  4. Place in a sealable container and refrigerate overnight. You can technically serve this right away, but it won’t be fully flavored from the spices and beef until you give it some time to sit.
  5. Serve with chopped veggies of your choice, or try some low carb rye crackers.

Serving size is approximately 2 tablespoons, but as you can see, you could easily have a slightly larger serving and still have reasonable nutrition stats for a snack.
