Oh my, this is marvelous dip. I made just a half recipe and served it with some different fondue dishes for dinner. It is rich and creamy and not "fishy" tasting. We really liked it. I made the dip early and chilled it a few hours before baking. I think this would even be good served cold as a cracker spread. Made for Spring Pac 2009. Thx for the recipe!

We love the the dips and bread appetizers, this one was no exception. I used a loaf of sour dough bread and went with two dashes of Tabasco sauce. I served with a bowl of my Mexican Hot Pepper Sauce for those who like a little extra heat. I will be making this combo again - and again. Thank you and your mom for sharing.
