Pickled Garlic Recipes

Here are some interesting ways you can use Rabbit’s Pickled Garlic to dress up you meals. Enjoy!

Sauteed Shrimp with Smoked Garlic Dip

Saute shrimp in butter, add onions if you like.  Dip shrimp in warmed smoke flavored garlic dip.

Garlic Butter sauce for basting, marinating

  • 1/2c melted butter with 1-2 minced garlic  cloves (or to taste)
  • Add following ingredients to basic recipe for a change:
    • Worchestershire sauce
    • Hot sauce
    • Cracked black pepper
    • Sauteed onions

Garlic Dip

I can’t even begin to tell you how good this is. I’ve been making this for the past few months for the markets to show customers one way to use the garlic.

The response has been great!. We try to have it on hand at the house for anyone who stops by.

Use approximately 1/4 Cup of chopped garlic, mix with 8ozs. of softened cream cheese. I add a little of the juice in the jar to help make the mix more spreadable and it adds more flavor. You can add or subtract the amount of garlic according to your taste.

Ideas on how to use the Garlic Dip

  1. Put it out with nacho chips or wheat thins
  2. Use on bagels, snack crackers
  3. Turn your plain ol’ hamburger into a delicious cheeseburger when you spread dip on your bun. The habanero sure adds some zest.
  4. Put a slice of cheese on a cracker and top it with a whole whole clove of garlic.
  5. It’s great to spread on soft wraps. Then top it with all kinds of different toppings. During Super Bowl I used lettuce, different cheeses, salami, ham, turkey etc. I rolled up the wrap, cut it in 2-3 pieces and held in place with a toothpick. You can make a platter full in minutes but they go fast!!

Garlic Bratwurst and Garlic Sausage

If you’re making your own bratwurst or sausage, put some chopped in the mix before putting it in the casings. Yum!! Or have your favorite meat processor put it in the next batch he makes for you.

Pickled Eggs

Save the juice from your favorite flavor.  Boil about 5-6 eggs.  It depends on the size of the eggs as to how many you can get in the jar.  Fill the jar with the peeled eggs.  Make sure the brine covers the eggs.  Leave them in the fridge about a week.  The longer you leave them in the fridge the stronger the flavor.

  • Just eat it out of the jar like we’ve always done, like a pickle or olives. Delicious!
  • Garlic Mashed Potatoes – We’ve been using the smoke flavor. (My husband now wants it 2-3x’s a week. Chop the garlic, we like the bigger pieces, and add it to the potatoes after you have cooked and mashed the potatoes.)
  • Garlic Broschette – Mash the garlic cloves and spread on broschette.
  • Garlic Bread Spread – Mash the garlic cloves with softened butter to spread on garlic bread before putting under the broiler.
  • Use in picnic salads – Cut up cloves to put in salads: potato, macaroni, egg and more.
  • Clarified Garlic Butter – Melt butter, add minced garlic. Keep warm, dip your steamed clams in it. We first tried it on BBQ’d oysters and it was a hit.
  • Garlic Bloody Mary or Martini – The spicy dill is great in Bloody Mary’s, in a martini instead of an olive.  I have a good friend that likes to pop a clove in her beer bottle.
  • Garlic in Meats…yummy! – Cut slits in the side of beef or pork roasts before cooking, the flavor is subtle but well worth trying.
  • Garlic Pasta Sauce – Use in pasta sauces, alfredo fettuccini.
  • Steak Marinade – Mash onto steaks during grilling or marinade for 1-2hrs before cooking.
  • Twice Baked Garlic Potatoes – Can’t beat the flavor in twice-baked potatoes.
  • Add to hamburgers – Mix whole or good-sized chunks of garlic into your hamburger before grilling.
  • Add to meatballs or meatloaf
  • Add to your favorite fried rice recipe.
  • Mix with your favorite BBQ sauce.
  • Spread mashed garlic on your grilled cheese or grilled tuna sandwich before cooking.
  • Mix minced garlic in your baking powder biscuit dough, your bread dough, or bread stick recipe.
  • Use as a pizza topping.
  • On Salads! – One customer pours the juice of the spicy dill on his salads.
