Mum's " Mock Chicken" Dip

“Isn't it great when you eat something and it takes you back to being a child again! Well that’s exactly what this dip does for me. My mum used to make this every time she threw a party or had people for drinks and nibbles. I would always have my own bowl and my own box of crackers and I would go off to some quiet spot and stuff my little face! I still love it now, so much so that I spoon it out of the pan while I'm cooking it (although I am trying to exercise more self control). This is such a quick and easy dip to make with stuff that you would normally have in the house, so a great standby for when people turn up unexpectedly. As for tasting like chicken? Well, I’ll let you decide...but I was never convinced. Either way it tastes great!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the diced onion and cook until they soften.
  2. Add the cheese and stir as it melts.
  3. Add the peeled, seeded and finely diced tomato along with the mixed herbs.
  4. Stir in the beaten egg and cook for a couple of minutes.
  5. Mix it all together and pour into a serving bowl.
  6. Serve warm (not hot) or at room temperature with Ritz or crackers of your choice.
  7. NB: You will need spoons with this; it’s more of a dollop and spread dip than a dipping one!
