Fugging Awesome Dips

Today’s guest post comes courtesy of authors Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, the two driving forces behind Go Fug Yourself. Spending each day mocking the underdressed and underfed works up quite the appetite, and the Fug Girls are happy to share their favorite party dip recipes—great accompaniments for watching the Final Four, the Golden Globes, or just sitting around wearing your favorite cotton-candy iceberg dress.

Sporting events tie with awards-show viewing parties as the best time of year to bring people together through finger food. Even if you couldn’t care less what a March Madness bracket is, or who’s playing in the Super Bowl, you probably turned up to your friend’s house to watch because he or she promised you good company and killer new dip.

(In fact, one Web site does a special feature every Friday for this purpose; its Buffalo Chicken Dip is a must-try, but we warn you, it’ll be tough not to plow through it all in one sitting.)

So if you’re considering using this weekend’s Final Four hoops games as an excuse to party, we two inveterate snackers present a few of our standby recipes. Consume them with friends, or yourself. We won’t judge. We’re too busy eating.

And if you live in or near New York City and you’d rather have someone else do the cooking, we recommend hightailing it to Blue Smoke. The creamy blue cheese and bacon dip, served with homemade barbecue potato chips (trust us, the combo works), is something we make a point to eat—usually with GFS’s very own Casey—every time we’re in town. Which we wish was right now, because after all this dip talk, we’re starving.

    YUM ladies! I love making spinach dip but didn’t think about using 1/2 packs each of the veggie AND leek soup – I just use the veggie soup.

    Gonna try these all.

    Here’s my fave…

    Brown one roll of Johnsonville reduced fat sausage in pan, drain. In 8″ square baking dish, put 1/3 red. fat cream cheese block. Dump hot sausage over top. Add 1 can of diced tomatoes with chilies. Stir together. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes. Serve with Fritos Scoops. BEST EVER.

    Oh my, this is perfect. I am looking forward to comments of readers with their own dip recipes. We are throwing my flatmate a “dip” party- everything served is going to be stuff you can dip into other stuff.
    hey, we’re college kids, we don’t have much in the way of fancy silverware or large tables for lots of formal seating, but we have tons of little containers/bowls/shot glasses and we can steal napkins form the dining hall. 😀

      Claudia, I fully support any party that involves swiping things from the dining hall! A tried-and-true Good. Food. Stories. move.
