It’s the holiday season which means parties, get-togethers with family, and lots of entertaining. And with that in mind, there is always food. So last night, I needed a dip, and I was looking for something fast and easy to put together. This dip came to mind and was a total hit at the party.

You only need just a handful of ingredients, and most of these are probably in your refrigerator and pantry. You can also change them up a bit to your liking by omitting or adding as you so desire. It’s not heavy, and it’s full of flavor.

How to Make Cheesy Baked Pepperoni Dip

I usually use pre-shredded cheese for this recipe. It’s fast, and some of the work is already done for me. The mayonnaise keeps this dip from being too heavy. I use full-fat mayonnaise–the fat-free or low-calorie never make it to my house. 🙂 I chop the pepperoni and onion and open up the cans of mushrooms and black olives. Seriously, that’s about it! Just mix and bake. Done!

Can I Make this Dip in Advance?

Yes, you most certainly can!
I knew I would be short on time right before the party, so I mixed all of the ingredients that morning before leaving for work. I mixed everything in a medium bowl, covered the bowl with plastic wrap, and placed it into the refrigerator. When I was ready to bake, I pulled it out of the fridge, put it into a baking dish, and baked it for 30 minutes. So easy.
