Hoagie Dip!

Hi everyone! For my Personal PIGskin Challenge this week I guess it's no surprise that when this Philly girl saw a recipe for Hoagie Dip I just had to try it!
This is the first dip I made that my boys were absolutely crazy about! If you're going to a party or watching the game and hoagies are not being served, this dip will be welcome!
Hope you love it if you try it:@)
Hoagie Dip (my notes)
1/2 pound cooked ham, thinly sliced
1/2 pound Genoa salami, thinly sliced
1 pound American cheese, thinly sliced (way too much, suggest 1/2 pound Provolone)
2 C mayonnaise (use only enough to wet the ingredients)
2 tsp dried oregano (start with one tsp and add more to taste)
1 onion, chopped (small onion)
1/2 head iceberg lettuce, shredded
2 tomatoes diced (seeded)
12 hoagie rolls, torn into pieces for dipping

  1. Tear the ham, salami and American cheese into small pieces. Place in a large bowl.
  2. In a medium bowl, blend the mayonnaise and oregano. Mix the mayonnaise mixture into the ham mixture 1/2 cup at a time, until meats and cheese are well coated. Mix in the onion.
  3. Before serving, mix in the lettuce and tomatoes. 
  4. Serve with the hoagie roll pieces for dipping.

My Notes:
  • This must make a huge amount of dip! Great for big parties, but easy enough to cut in half or make even less. I simply had the girl cut me a 1/4" thick slice of ham, Genoa and Provolone cheese and diced them to about 1/4". I scaled everything else down too. My dip made approx 2 Cups.
  • On-line pictures show this being served in a hollowed out round loaf of artisan bread.
  • Make sure you seed the tomato. 
  • Shred and chop the lettuce so there aren't real long strings.
  • If you like hot or sweet peppers add them, just dry them on paper towels first. 
  • Would be great with cocktail rye bread, crackers, bagel or pita chips, and tortillas too.
  • If you're taking this to a party, mix the meat and cheese, mayo, and oregano in a bowl. Dice the tomato and put it in a separate bag or bowl, do the same for the lettuce and onion. When you get to the party mix everything together before serving.
  • This is more of a 'spoon onto bread' than 'dip the bread into' type of dip.

We have our first holiday party soon and we all bring appetizers. I want to make this one. Love the piggy bowl. Mine won't taste the same in a boring bowl, but it will have to do.

  14. I just know all our men will love this at Super Bowl Sunday party we have every year at son's house.
    Thanks, Lynn...

  15. I LOVE hoagie dip! This fellow Philly girl just had to check this out when I saw it listed on Foodie Friday. I could go for some of that right about now...

  16. Lynn, How cute that dip bowl is, and what a beautiful plate he is sitting on! The spread sounds so good. I believe we could make a meal out of that. Your Christmas header is fabulous! Thank you for linking to Favorite Things. laurie

  17. I so love your pig! And yum on the recipe. I'm having fun poking around this blog!

  18. That looks like a friday's favorite for sure... I may just have to give it a try this weekend~ since we'll be watching the SEC championship :-)

  19. Loved your idea of putting dip in a pig planter. My 13 year old granddaughter collects pig things. I have a planter just like yours so will serve dip in it for Christmas Eve. She will love it! Happy Holidays.

  20. I was just starting to blog a year ago, so never saw this terrific recipe, thanks for sharing, it looks fab! Although, I love the little pig bowl too and don't have one...but I'll try it anyway.
    Happy Thanksgiving again. FABBY
