Broccoli Cheese Veggie Dip | | Cheesy, warm and creamy veggie dip that's perfect for game days!

What’s up, pals!!! Happy weekend! I am chillin’ at a McD’s Playplace at the moment and having a cup of McD’s latte…
I’m also people-watching and the dude next to my table just offered me his fries. Kind people are awesome.

In other news, this dip is my life right now. That is, my life on game days. The textures, the flavors, and the perfect amount of broccoli and cheese… 

However, while you are watching THAT game, I’m sitting over here dippin’ my broccoli and watching Macedonia play in the World Men’s Handball Championship!

I, uhh, did you just ask what Handball is!?! How dare you!! 😉

Well, for now, it’s my addiction. Also? It’s similar to basketball, but instead of a basket, there’s a net, similar to a soccer net. Thus, it’s like soccer + basketball in one.

OK, not really, but almost.

So our veggie dip here was born out of pure necessity. To save ourselves from biting off our fingers during an intense game between Macedonia and Bosnia, a dip, veggies and chips saved the day. And our fingers.

Oh my gosh, you guys. WHY did I wait this long to add broccoli to my cheese DIP?! I mean, I add broccoli to my Shells and CHEESE, so I should have figured it out by now, you know? Duh.

Just to be clear. Dipping broccoli into a broccoli dip is totally fine. Don’t listen to my other half. He snorted when he saw my veggie tray overflowing with broccoli. I’m just a broccoli-fiend and won’t deny it. If you so happen to love your chips more than anything else, dip your chip. I ain’t gonna tell. Nor judge.

    I’m a broccoli fiend as well so there’s no such thing as too much broccoli in my book!

    I could definitely polish off a large bowl of this delicious dip right now.. along with a good crusty bread and glass of wine!

    i love the broccoli and cheese combo and I love dips so I am making this!

    Funny, I was driving home an hour ago from a birthday party and I discovered a McDonalds with a play place not too far from me and thought what a good idea to bring my toddler here-no joke!

      Hi Deanna!! Happy New Year!!

      Well, I wanted to just grab a spoon and go at it! 😀 But, I didn’t. DAMN! 😉

      So, I took the little ones to that Playplace for a bday party and they loved it. I try to keep them away from McD’s and such, but not sure for how much longer I will be able to do that because so many of our friends either call us for playdates at McD’s or bday parties… :-/

        Happy New Year’s to you as well! I hear ya on keeping them away from McDonald’s my parents swear it’s not the end of the world if we take them there-don’t know what is with grandparents and taking grandkids there-nostalgia I guess 🙂 I figure while the weather is crummy it’s one more place to let them burn off energy lol.

    I’m a broccoli field, too. I’d totally dip tons of broccoli in this dip. Also, you’re a better person than me. I can’t handle playplaces.
