As the previous review stated, this is a true keeper. We really like this warm appetizer to balance with our spread of the fresh veggies and cheese and crackers. I have added finely chopped green pepper, too. Men and women love this appetizer.

I have made this recipe for years. It is often a requested recipe at one friend's house. A true keeper.

I also have made this recipe, just as written, for probably 25 years. It's always enjoyed. Don't forget to eat the bread bowl itself! Leftovers (if any) are great, too.
