Secret Recipe Club hosts an optional themed reveal on months with an extra Monday. The theme for this event is Leprechauns & Bunnies. St. Patrick's Day and Easter are right around the corner and what a perfect theme to load up on an arsenal of holiday friendly dishes like carrot cake, corned beef and other green dishes!
I was assigned Sid's Sea Palm Cooking
. I loved the variety of recipe to choose from! I have a friend who recently moved to Copenhagen and it was fun to look at all of the different Danish offerings on the blog. I had a hard time choosing between a few different recipes. At the top of my list was Bread Pudding with Irish Soda Bread
, Deviled Egg Chicks
, and Ham and Green Onion Roll-Ups
. However, the recipe that won me over was the Green Onion Spread.
My husband loves green onions and I loved the idea of a spicy cream dip. The original recipe called for everything to be minced, but I opted use my food processor to speed up the process a bit and was hoping the processed green onions would produce a lovely green color for my dip. I opted to serve my dip with corn chips, but crackers or veggies would also be delicious.
My husband and I loved this dip and gobbled it up! The dip was a nice light green and a great fit for the Leprechaun part of the theme- especially with the additional sliced onions on top.
I love these themed reveals and I believe that the next one will happen in May- can't wait to see what fun the next theme will bring to our group!
Check out the round-up below to see more Leprechaun & Bunnies inspired recipes!
