Superbowl Reuben Dip
It’s time again for the ultimate American football game- the game that decides the winner of the national championship-and also at my house, the time we usually throw a casual little party. For my family, the Superbowl is less about the game (apologies to avid fans out there,) and more about the excuse to entertain, to eat delicious food, and of course to enjoy the commercials and halftime show!
This year, of course, everything is different. We are having a very small gathering; some of the usual most notable participants in the expensive commercial race are instead donating funds to COVID research (kudos to them!); and far more people will be watching the game from the comfort and safety of their own homes than attending in person or going to parties, sports bars, etc. to watch with friends or strangers.
Still, we can make the best of the current situation and embrace a festive mood. To that end, I decided to share a recipe my family loves, that my husband actually perfected and makes for special occasions, Reuben Dip. I hope you enjoy it!
