Cooking, Man-Style

We like to keep things simple. Meat. Cheese. The "occasional" donut. So when we're in the kitchen we believe in the "three step" rule. Here are a few of our favorite recipes – try to follow along. Don’t bother with the measuring spoons. Just pour.


  1. Scramble or fry eggs, per personal preference
  2. Place eggs on a plate and cover completely with your favorite Mandip


  1. Prepare 16 pancakes with Bisquick “shake and pour” pancake mix
  2. Cover with ManDip
  3. Serves two grown men. Or one – we don't judge.


  1. Cook hot dogs on grill
  2. Place hot dogs in buns
  3. Cover with your favorite Man Dip

Man Dip-Wich

  1. Toast bagel or bread in a toaster – or, if you’re feeling extra manly, on the grill
  2. Cover with your favorite Man Dip
  3. Eat as a sandwich or open-faced


  1. Grill the largest T-bone or porterhouse steak you can find
  2. Cover with your favorite Man Dip
  3. Wash down with a Captain and Coke (Diet, if you’re still doing that Atkins thing)


WARNING: This one has extra steps. Consult a lady friend (wife, girlfriend, cute neighbor) if you get lost.

For Crust

  • 1 (32-ounce) package frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1/4 cup grated white onion
  • 1/2 cup shredded semi-soft cheese (such as cheddar or Monterey Jack)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

For filling

  • 1 (14-ounce) tub of Man Dip
  • 3/4 cup biscuit mix, such as Bisquick
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

Put it all together

  1. Make the crust. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Generously grease an 8- or 9-inch pie plate. In a large bowl, stir together potatoes, onion, cheese, 1 egg, salt and pepper until combined. Spread in the pie plate, covering the bottom and sides to form a shell. Bake 20 minutes. (The crust may be frozen at this point. Thaw before proceeding with the recipe.)
  2. Make the filling. Pour the spicy dip into the cooled crust. Using a fork, stir together biscuit mix, milk and 2 eggs until just combined. Spread over the dip. Bake for 25 minutes, until filling is lightly browned. (For a browner, crispier crust, broil for the final 2 or 3 minutes of cooking time.) Let cool for 10 minutes.
  3. Slice pie into six wedges. If desired, top with sausage gravy and serve with scrambled eggs.
