HOT POTS and HOT DIPS for HOT PARTIES
Are you going to a party and you were asked to provide a dish to pass? What are you going to serve that dip in? Plastic? You’ve read the statistics and warnings about plastics and heating or reheating, haven’t you? Well, we have a great suggestion for you.
One of our small covered dishes is the perfect dish to bake your favorite hot dip. Why? Because it is beautiful, holds the heat, is food safe and human safe. Pottery or ceramics is non-reactive so you and your family and friends don’t have to worry about their health.
And better yet, no one else has one of these, handmade, one of a kind pottery covered dishes, or ‘Art for Everyday’, except you, because you know about us. And the 15% off special we are offering, plus some more recipes and a free ornament with each purchase is just our way of saying Happy Holidays to all.
These are two recipes sent to us by one of our regular customers after they bought a few of these covered dishes (we like to call them butter crocks, because they also store butter or margarine and kitties can’t get to it!). I suggested hot artichoke dip, one of our favorites, but they found that unimaginative! and offered to email me some recipes. We include these two and another one with each purchase. In fact we give away these recipes to anyone who comes into the gallery.
These are also microwave and dishwasher safe: our teenagers put them through the test and they stood up to that abuse for years, so you could say they are teen tough.
Monterrey Shrimp Dip
1 package (8 oz) Pepper Jack Cheese (grated)
8 oz (chopped) cooked shrimp
2 1/2 oz (chopped) black olives
4-5 chopped green onion stalks
3/4 cup Mayonnaise
Mix all ingredients and microwave for one minute. Do this 3 times until mixture is warm throughout. Use either tortilla chips or Frito scoops.
Brie With Toppings
1/2 wedge or round of Brie cheese
2 TBS orange marmalade
1 TBS brown sugar
2 TBS maple syrup
2 TBS chopped pecans
Place brie into a dish. Mix all other ingredients and place on top of the brie in the dish. Heat in a microwave for 1 minute or until the brie is soft and easy to scoop up.
We have several of these dishes in the gallery in many different glazes, and many of those glazes can be seen on our etsy.com site so you can go on over and take a look at some of our other selections. We also have soup mugs , goblets, and bowls. We also make larger 8C covered dishes perfect for company mac’n’cheese. Maybe you have a better recipe? So leave a comment and share it! Thanks
