A friend shared this with me last year. I have made a batch a month since then. It is an adaptation of a famous restaurants signature cheese. Everyone likes it. It makes a great present. It will keep for extended periods when refrigerated but mine has never lasted more than a week. Enjoy.
I take this dip to almost every gathering I go to.....and have never had to haul any of it home! It's never had a real name, but when people ask what's in it?/how do you make it?, the response is always the same: "It's so easy. Five things and stir!".
You can actually add additional items like diced jalapenos, sliced black olives, etc to make it your own.....but the basic recipe is always a hit! I use the extra hot Rotel to kick it up, but for those who prefer milder flavor, you can use the regular or even 'mild' Rotel. I DO highly recommend Rotel (rather than any other brand of diced tomatoes w/chilis)...there's just something about the flavor that's very unique. Enjoy!
Pretty little pastry shells made from a Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dough sheet combine with a basil-cheese filling in these beautiful baked appetizers. Recipe is one of the 100 finalists in the 2010 Pillsbury Bake-Off contest, submitted by JoAnn Belack.
This is from a great little restaurant in South Louisiana. I begged and begged for the recipe until they finally caved in.
***Edited on June 9, 2008--I would suggest tasting the dip before adding any salt. Depending on your mayo, you may or may not need any***
A really great tapa that will get you many compliments. Really simple to make. The original recipe was by Roxanne. I have served this at many of my "Wine and Tapa" parties and was always pleased by the response.
If you adore artichokes, you should adore this CHEESY appetizer. This takes your next gathering to the sophisticated level. Great for special occasions, if you are having a large get together you will probably want to double this recipe, and keep it warm.
I served this recipe at a holiday party. It was the first appetizer to disappear, and was one of the easiest to prepare. With all that pork bacon, cheese, and a bread bowl - where else to put this recipe but the Midwestern U.S. states.
Elegant appetizer or snack. So very easy to make, just mix and bake! Also makes a yummy dip instead of a spread. From Cooking Light Magazine so it is keeping with my New Years resolution to eat healthier! (2 bread slices with 2 tablespoons spread = 1 portion)
This is one of my all-time favorite recipes from Pampered Chef. They're quick, easy and can be made in bulk and frozen for later. Such an attractive appetizer, too! From a pampered chef invitation I received from a friend.
