Perfect Appetizer for the Big Game, or a Sunday Snack. You will dive into this hot bubbly dip and love it. I promise.
I love to use my 8in Cast Iron Frying Pan and throw this right into the oven, however you can also use a glass pie dish as well. It will taste fabulous, I promise.
Bake for 13-15 Minutes or until hot and bubbly and remove from oven. Remember the Cast Iron will be hot! It will stay hot longer than a glass dish even, so keep those little fingers away.
Dip slices of a French Baguette into the tip or use Chips. Honestly, a spoon is just as good too! 😉 We won't tell.
The cheese melts and is wonderful with this hot Pizza Dip Appetizer. This dip is a bit rich, but make sure you get enough the first time because there won't be any left for 2nds.
We have made this recipe a number of times while watching Football or Baseball. I'm always getting requests on new combination.
