While you enjoy your annual activities like the fair online this year, you need to up your snack game with dairy recipes. Why? Because if you’re going digital, you need to fully immerse yourself in the other parts of the experience, and the tastiest way to do that is through food. So for state fair livestreams, you must have snacks that remind you of the fair like soft pretzels and fried pickles.
Now, your favorite fair food can also be your favorite dairy recipe. The secret? Add a dip! For those savory snacks that would be perfect if you could just figure out the missing ingredient, pair with a dip for a satisfying bite to eat.
While you can always turn to the classic cheese dip for chips and veggie sticks, there’s plenty of other delicious dairy recipe options. A yogurt dip brings a cool, tangy flavor you’ll love with each crunch. On the other end of the heat spectrum, this cheese dip adds spicy additions like taco seasoning and chipotle pepper in adobo sauce for a surprise kick. If you’re after that spice but with a different texture, try this dip made with feta cheese and yogurt or this dip that combines yogurt with salsa.
Now that we’ve convinced you to add a dip to those savory fair snacks, make your fair foods even better by including a cheesy center! This cheese-stuffed burger slider has an onion jam that will have you reaching for more. Or, for dairy on dairy (with even more dairy), these pimiento cheese poppers are stuffed with cheddar cheese and cream cheese. Add a dip for extra flavor, like a cheese dip or a modified buttermilk blue cheese dressing. There are so many possibilities when you add a dip to your snack menu.
