Entertainment Collection 5 dry Herb Mixes for dips, cheese spread and dressings, salt-free
** FREE SHIPPING ON THIS ITEM in the USA**
You are looking at a combination of my FIVE most popular Herb Mixes. I grouped these together for a quick hostess gift, party favor, house warming or just what you need to make an entertaining splash at your next party.
They come in the decorative handmade container or bag. A few examples are included in the photos. Along with a short booklet of recipes you can craft with the mixes called "Holiday Favorites."
At the Backyard Patch I craft blends of home-grown herbs to create dips, sauces, dressings and spreads for use in cooking and entertaining. This group of five includes a great mix of our specialty blends to give you a perfect introduction to the large number of Herb Blends we make.
This set of FIVE contains:
Marcy's (that's me!) Dill Dip - and you can make it no/low fat and no one will know!
Garlic & Herb Combination - my answer to perfect garlic bread
Boursin Blend- An out-of-the ordinary cheese dip or spread.
Butter 'n' Cheese - a staple in my house that you blend with butter or cream cheese
Salt-free Ranch Dressing / Dip - much less salt than any other on the market!
Each mix comes in a zip seal pouch for easy storage along with tips, instructions and easy-to-follow recipes for creating herb-flavored delights. Although each was originally crafted to make a particular item, years of experimentation by customers and family has resulted in extra recipes and variations which are included with each mix. I even include a recipe book with even more ideas for using these time-saving mixes.
Try them and enjoy!
Here is a detailed description of the mixes in this combination:
Marcy's Dill Dip - This mix was my first creation and is the only one to be graced with my name. It makes a superb party dip, just mix with mayonnaise and sour cream (I use the no-fat sour cream and light mayo and my guests can't even tell). Even tastes great with yogurt. Good on carrots or other vegetables and crackers. A staple of all my holiday entertaining!
Garlic & Herb Combination - My top seller, probably because of the glorious garlic taste and its versatility. Blend it with butter for killer garlic bread. Put it in oil for a toasted bread dip or pizza topping. Use the recipes provided to create a tomato bruschetta or vegetable pasta toss that is good hot or cold.
Boursin Cheese Blend - This classic French specialty can be used fresh or frozen for later use. Blended with cream and cottage cheeses it is a spread for crackers or vegetables and can even be used to create an Alfredo sauce.
Butter 'n' Cheese - My personal favorite mix, I cannot cook without it. This medley of seven herbs creates a great herbal butter or cream cheese spread. You can also sprinkle it on vegetables. Wonderful as a chicken rub or on baked potatoes as an herbal butter. You only need 1 tablespoon of the mix to an 8 once package of cream cheese or two sticks of butter (and it tastes just as good with low cholesterol alternatives). I make the butter in advance and freeze it until entertaining. Everyone thinks I slaved in the kitchen!
Salt-free Ranch Dressing/Dip- This mild and tasty blend of herbs creates both a traditional Ranch salad dressing when using buttermilk or a dip for vegetables and chips with sour cream and mayonnaise.
Like all blends from the Backyard Patch we guarantee an 18 to 24 month shelf-life, because we hand-blend only the freshest herbs. All Backyard Patch herbs are raised organically and are chemical and pesticide free.
