A humble garlic dip is sending Aldi shoppers into a recipe-sharing frenzy, with foodies raving about the versatility of the $3.50 item. The Mediterranean Delite dip from Aldi is quickly become a must-have item, flying off the shelves as shoppers discover the endless array of dishes it can elevate.
Aldi fan groups on social media have been buzzing with excitement as garlic lovers flood the platforms with mouthwatering snaps and easy-to-follow recipes, sharing just how amazing this garlicky dip can be on everything from pizza bases to roast potatoes.
Cheesy garlic pizza
One of the most popular uses for the dip to emerge has been spreading it on pizza bases to create next level versions of the Italian fave.
One mum shared her technique, saying, "we put about 3/4 of a tub garlic dip on each pizza base and half a bag of cheese on each as well, baked for 25 mins on 180 fan forced then grilled for the last 2 mins to get the tops deliciously brown."
The result? "ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!!"
Another shopper suggested trying the Aldi herb pizza base for extra zing, to which the response was a unanimous "OMG YUM!"
A member of the popular Facebook group Aldi Fans Australia eagerly joined the "bandwagon," getting her hands on the garlic dip for a fuss-free dinner.
Sharing a snap of her potato bake ready to go in the oven, she wrote, "omg this is going to be amazing."
Revealing her technique, she said she whisked one tablespoon of the garlic dip with half a cup of cream and cheese, drizzling the mixture over the potatoes before letting it bake until golden.
Thrilled with the delicious outcome, she already has her sights set on the next meal using the dip; garlic prawns.
Garlic pull-aparts and scrolls
Other group members got creative by incorporating the dip into baked goods, elevating the flavours to a whole new level.
"Cheesy garlic pepperoni pull-apart is our family favourite for that dip," one person shared, along with images of the preparation and cooking process.
Another member excitedly shared her baking technique using the dip; garlic scrolls made with puff pastry, grated cheese, brown onion, diced bacon, and, of course, the popular garlic dip.
Another garlic lover shared her go-to use for the $3.50 dip, making what she dubbed "smashed potato balls."
Sharing her technique, she said she begins by heating up a bag of microwavable potatoes as per the instructions, and then smashes them with a fork before giving them a coating of the garlic dip.
"I then throw them into the airfryer or oven until golden brown," she said before confessing she could eat the whole tray by itself, but intends to serve them with green beans, pork chops and apple sauce.
Another user shared their creative spin, making 'fake-away kebabs', using a combination of Aldi products, including boneless butterflied mango chicken, perfectly paired in a Turkish wrap with the famous garlic dip for some extra oomph.
"Absolutely delicious," she wrote, "the garlic dip is sensational."
The Mediterranean Delite dip has proved to be the basis for an endless source of meal inspo for Aldi shoppers with other dinner ideas including lamb and tabouli wraps, souvlakis, koftas and even using the dip as a flavour base in salad dressings.
"OMG, this dip is life," one person exclaimed, while another couldn't help but confess, "I eat it on everything."
The biggest problem now might just be getting your hands on it, with some users revealing they haven't been able to find it in store.
"I went to Aldi today, garlic dip is not on the shelves. It must be really yum!"
