Minions Delicious Stuffed Crust and Dip Recipe
Can you believe that the movie we have been waiting all year to come out was just released on Blu-Ray/DVD December 8th! Minions © 2015 Universal Studios. All rights reserved. While we don’t get to do movie theaters a lot because of Korey’s busy schedule, we always try to get in a movie night when new releases come out. Making the minions’ favorite Stuffed Crust and dip was the perfect solution for our movie night.
We Love Those Little Yellow Guys!
Ever since the first movie Despicable Me was introduced by Illumination Entertainment, my family has been yellow from head to toe. We have pajamas, pants, shirts, socks, hats, you name it we have it. If you can’t contain your excitement for the Minions release you can buy it online and get the Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack from a variety of retailers.
When Korey was asked what minion he wanted in the shape of his stuffed crust, he said “Stuart, no Bob, no Kevin!”. Dad thought it was a good idea that we covered them all so we made 3 different stuffed crusts, and 3 different dips to kick off our Minions movie night.

Offering 3 dips was a great choice, each one being different just like the minions made it fun to see the food personalities of my kids.
If your kids are older they can help out with rolling up the stuffed crust. You can talk about what you think the minions might get up to in the new movie. Have you seen the trailers? Ask them which part is their favorite so far.
Minions movie night means that the kids can get a little mischievous, and these stuffed crusts fit in their hands perfectly. That way nothing can stop them from putting on their goggles and dressing down in their best minions outfit!
This minions party was the best party ever, according to Korey! That made me feel awesome, it’s the little things like spending time with family but making it more special by turning movie night into a little party with stuffed crust.
Take out the toys, the snacks, the clothes, everything minions related you have and the kids will be super happy.
Now that you’ve seen how I throw a party for the Minions release I want to know what recipe you would make. Tell me in the comments below.
