For me, when it comes to pinning on Pinterest, usually a picture is worth a thousand words. A recipe, a tip, or a craft that is visually appealing is more likely to get a second look from me. Although the picture I saw for this dip was stunning (more on that later), it was the name that caught my attention. Seriously, Hissy Fit Dip!? Right? Underneath it was this caption, “Hissy Fit Dip – Rumor has it that the first time this was served at an SEC tailgating party; it was so popular that it was gone in no time flat! One uppity Southern belle who missed tasting the new recipe was distraught and pitched a big hissy fit, hence forth the name.” Great story, great name. Had to try it. I took this to a party the other night and everyone who tried it either said it was great, or went back for seconds. It really is a tasty, savory dip. Good stuff!
But I thought I did something wrong, because it looked nothing like this beautiful picture from the pin.
Having made this twice now, I recommend an adjustment to the recipe. It says to bake for one hour. I think half an hour to forty five minutes is better. You need the cheeses to melt, not burn on top. I think that would make this recipe look a little more appealing.
I was so relieved to see that White Lights on Wednesday had the same results. Check out her pic; looks just like mine. Whew! What a relief. Don’t mind that it doesn’t look like the eye catching photo, it is delish. Next party you go to, give it a try.
This ugly pin rocks!
