What's almost as important as the actual game on Super Bowl Sunday? The dips! Get three great recipes to try out at your get-together this weekend:

Grilled dips like that almost make me want to host a party, but then I remember that it would involve having guests and the feeling passes. :wink: :lol:

However, I'm definitely going to keep the dips in mind for this summer. There are always a couple of potlucks/cookouts we attend and these recipes would be perfect.

Try adding plain yogurt to the grilled eggplant dip. It makes it creamy and gives additional tangy flavor. I’m from Middle Eastern origin and that’s how we did it back home.

I'm actually of Scottish/Irish descent, but many of my friends and coworkers are of Middle Eastern or Greek origin as well, and I have to agree with BBQ-Z here. This dip is a variant of baba ghanoush and it's quite good, but adding yogurt makes it even better. (And it's one of the only ways I like to eat eggplant, too, because I don't like the skins at all.)

Another really great substitute for plain yogurt is Balkan-style or Greek yogurt. I grab the Balkan-style stuff wherever I can - it's about 3% butterfat rather than 1% or fat free, but it has a very rich texture like full-fat sour cream. And the taste is much tangier than regular plain yogurt so it really enhances the flavor of dips.

I also use it in place of sour cream, and for Greek tzatziki there's really no substitute, either.
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

I agree CG, Greek yogurt is the best for this application.

Her is a version of the eggplant dip without Tahini or yogurt; it calls for pomegranate molasses instead. Also the addition of grilled onions, peppers and tomatoes

Great idea! Even though it's not grilled, I always add Greek yogurt to my guacamole. It makes it creamier and you add volume without making it unhealthy.
