When we think of the food that we serve for a Super Bowl party, it’s hard not to find a place for some kind of dip — some creamy, tangy, spicy concoction to complement something crispy like a potato chip, nacho, or celery stick.

The great thing about the idea of a ‘dip’ — a purely American concept, just like the Super Bowl — is that it is so versatile and wide ranging. Guacamole is Mexican, hummus is Middle Eastern, and mayonnaise is French, but when you think of these three dishes as dips, then they suddenly become American.

This quick and easy Parmesan Mayonnaise recipe is great as a dip for vegetables, chips, or even meat. It can also be turned into a deliciously browned, cooked topping for a toast or a pizza shell. Just preheat your broiler, spread the mayonnaise thinly on the bread or dough, and cook until golden and bubbly.

Parmesan  Mayonnaise (makes about 1qt)

  • 3 cups good-quality store-bought mayonnaise, (such as Hellmann’s )
  • 1 cup coarsely grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Few shots hot sauce


In a medium-sized mixing bowl, fold together all ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to use. ENJOY!
