Addiction is a terrible thing and we would never want encourage any sort of obsession…until now. We have been hoarding this recipe for some time, only sharing the finished product…watching eyes widen, mouths water and hands reach for more…and more. We were first introduced to this dip of sorts at a dinner party at the home of one of our favorite belles and her husband. This particular husband is a man’s man with his fishing, hunting, entertaining, wining and dining…but to top it all off, he can cook better than most experienced chefs we know! And the love of his life is smart enough to let him do just that, genius belle that she is…
Any-who, he started us off with this asiago dip that, from the get-go, we couldn’t move more than an arms-length away from for fear that it might be absconded with. Imagine our poor manners that evening as we inhaled our new-found love like it was going to be our last meal…rest assured, we would have died happy.
Come to find out from our favorite “recipe dealer”, this divine concoction only needed a few ingredients and required minimal skills to prepare. That is pure music to a belle’s dainty ears.
Now…you do need a food processor…but once you have that covered, you’re in business!
In that dahlin’ food processor, place:
1 1/2 cups olive oil (it can be run-of-the-mill olive oil…we used Luccini)
1 1/2 lbs. parmesan (cut into chunks)
1/2 lb. asiago (cut into chunks)
3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1 tsp. crushed red pepper
2 tsp. dried oregano (or use 1 tbsp. fresh oregano)
2 green onions, chopped
Process until it resembles course meal. Let stand, covered, at least 4 hours. You may refrigerate at this point if you’re planning to serve at a later time, but bring back to room temp when ready to serve.
Top with an extra couple of chopped green onions and black pepper for garnish.
Now, you might find that you want to eat this stuff right up with a spoon, but we sliced up a baguette to have alongside…belles should at least TRY to practice restraint!! Before we could snap a decent photo, we ate it all up…so we had to borrow a pic of the finished product from Pinterest…
Maybe next time we’ll be able to control ourselves…but don’t count on it!
