Total Time

5 cups

Try this warm creamy dip that can be served with veggies or crackers. It’s a delicious snack any time of year, but there’s something about grilling it for an outdoor occasion that makes it extra special. —Zelda DeHoedt, Cedar Rapids, IA


  • 1 medium leek (white portion only), halved and sliced
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 jar (2 ounces) diced pimientos, drained
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Assorted fresh vegetables, crackers or toasted baguette slices


  1. Prepare campfire or grill for medium-low heat. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Spread mixture in the bottom of a 8-in. disposable foil square pan. Lightly cover with nonstick foil.
  2. Place pan on a grill grate over a campfire or on grill until lightly browned and bubbly, about 25 minutes. Serve with vegetables and crackers.

Test Kitchen tips
  • The underside of the foil touches the top of the dip, which is why nonstick foil is used. If you don't have nonstick, lightly spray the underside of regular foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  • The Parmesan cheese won't melt completely, which gives the dip a slightly textured appearance, but it tastes smooth and creamy.
