What We Ate {Mushroom Dip}

Last week, we had a Roadkill Day at work.  Roadkill Day?!  Ew, I know that about half of you are ready to click away from this post, but hold on!  Roadkill Day is our strange name for a potluck lunch at work.  The name pre-dates me, and I'm not exactly sure why it is called that, but trust me when I say that Roadkill Day is awesome.  We all bring our A-game, and the lunch options are fantastic!

So anyway, last Thursday was Roadkill and I didn't know what to make because I was super-busy on Wednesday night and didn't know how I was going to find time to make something delicious in the 15 spare minutes that I had, and since I didn't have a recipe in mind, I hadn't shopped for any specific ingredients.  Meaning I would also need to hit the grocery store. Ugh. I almost decided to skip Roadkill altogether, which is totally unlike me and a testament to how poorly prepared I really was, but then I remembered Mushroom Dip. With only five ingredients (four of which I had on hand), and a five minute prep time, this yummy dip was exactly what I needed!  Granted, the dip's mushroom color makes it not the most photo-worthy, or eye-catching recipe of all time, but I guarantee you it is DELICIOUS!

Mushroom Dip
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 envelope dry Italian dressing
8 oz fresh mushroom (ground in food processor)
3/4 cup mayonnaise

Mix all ingredients together. Pour in baking dish and bake 20 minutes at 350.  Serve with fresh vegetables, pita chips, or any dipping vessel of your choice.  I opted to heat mine in a mini dip-sized crockpot,  and that worked well too.

It's so good, and SOO easy.  What simple and delicious recipes do you have in your back pocket?
