Folks, the big game is less than a month away. This means play offs and high-stakes games are happening, and at my house this means some serious game day eats! I love experimenting with classic recipes like cheesesteak by turning them into a completely different dishes like this Philly Cheesesteak Dip!
People get VERY passionate about their cheesesteak, especially when it comes to the type of cheese used. My favorite cheesesteak ever was actually in Philly, and it had American cheese on it. So that’s why I used American cheese in this recipe. If you like provolone or mozzarella better, then use one of those. No worries at all, folks!
This Philly Cheesesteak Dip is warm, cheesy, and a little bit zesty! It’s often the first thing to go on game day. Serve sliced French bread, tortilla chips, or even celery and carrot sticks for dipping and you’ll have game day perfection!
Cook’s Note – Philly Cheesesteak Dip
- In this recipe I highly recommend using Land O’Lakes white American cheese from the deli at your local supermarket. I like how it melts a lot better compared to the American cheese singles you find in the dairy case.
- To make this dip ahead of time: Prepare the dip all the way up until cooking in the oven. Cover with foil and refrigerate up to 24 hours. Add about 5 extra minutes of cooking time to compensate for the dip being chilled.
- This dip can be doubled. Make sure your skillet can accommodate the extra ingredients though. If it can’t use a large, wok-style pan. Or you can make the dip in batches and bake it all together in a 9 x 13 pan.
