The Monday Recipe Blog
Today, straight from the recipe box of Lois Elaine Mueller, is a recipe for Cottage Cheese Dip. For the next several months I will be featuring Lois Elaine's recipes every Monday. Her heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.
Lots of people entertained in the 1950's and 1960's, and going out to a party was a big deal. Great dips were as prized back then as they are now, and Lois' recipe for Cottage Cheese Dip looks like a good one.
Lois Elaine's Cottage Cheese Dip:
1 lb. Michigan cottage cheese, small curd (note...I'll bet cottage cheese NOT made in Michigan will make a good dip, too)
1/2 t. onion juice or 3/4 t. Ivanhoe (note - I have NO idea what Ivanhoe is - I'll just squeeze the juice out of an onion)
1/2 t. dry mustard
1/2 t. Worchestershire sauce
1 t. horseradish
1/2 t. salt
Mix in blender. Add enough cream to reach proper consistency.
