Dad’s Rye Boat Dip
Whenever we have a family get together my daughters will inevitably ask me to make a rye boat dip.
I have tried, unsuccessfully I might add, to take the easy way out and buy store made rye boat dip. Well, I am always disappointed on so many levels such as taste and cost. The bottom line is I just make this dish myself. So, I would like to share this recipe with you.
