Benedictine

Benedictine, a Louisville, Kentucky, signature dish, is cream cheese mixed with chopped green onions, mayonnaise and green food coloring. Usually lots of food coloring -- enough that the finished product sometimes looks like something the family Frankenstein might offer as an hors d'oeuvre. It is a hostess food, rarely found on restaurant menus but frequently used in dainty crustless sandwiches or, in a much heartier configuration, as co-star in a Benedictine and bacon or ham sandwich.
