"One of the best and easiest dips I've ever made. It is baked to absolute creamy, cheesy perfection! I made this dip over the holidays and everyone loved it. I used baked French baguette slices to dip. I found this gem of a recipe on, and so glad I did!"

I actually make this for lunch and wrap it in Boston lettuce for a quick lunch. Low in carbs and lots of protein. Just what I need to keep my diabetes in control. Excellent!

Loved it atop oven toasted buttered bread rounds. I opted for the wine and it gave the dip a nice flavor along with the other ingredients! I am so happy I made this dip for the Super Bowl. I will make this again in the very near future, we liked it so much!

Worth more than 5 stars! Creamy and extra delicious dip that my family raves about every time I serve it. I put mine in the fridge for about 8 hours before serving so the flavors mix together good. At serving time I surround the bowl with pita chips, bread bites and celery sticks. Great on crusty bread slices too!

After having this during the holidays and liking it so much, I wanted to try making it myself and it is an awesome dip. Easy too!
