Pimento Cheese Dip and SPREAD, New Orleans Remoulade Style For Mardi Gras

Pin It Now!

Did ya'll catch yesterday's post on a fresh made Creole Remoulade Sauce???  That seasoned Mayonnaise based condiment loaded with the flavors of New Orleans!

If not, double click the blue letters or double click the photo to the right to see that easy to duplicate recipe.  This is one of those "Can't make this unless you make that first" recipes.

As good as the sauce is as a condiment for fish (or Crab Cakes!), I always make a cup or two extra so I can play a bit.  Earlier this month I had made a Pimento Cheese Dip.  This is the same dip, simply changing a cup of Mayonnaise in that recipe to a cup of the Creole remoulade Sauce.

The Remoulade Cheese Dip is terrific as a dip (Just add Fritos Scoops).  But I really think this recipe shines as a spread to make a wonderful Toasted Cheese Sandwich.

Just add Soup, spread the cheese dip and a couple minutes under the broiler (or in a grill) and done!  Great Appetizer for any Cajun themed dinner party!

Happy Mardi Gras!
