    Made this as our Valentine's day appetizer. I thought I could make/serve it in a baking dish, instead of the bread. My mistake, all of the oil from the mayo was sitting right on top when I took it out of the oven. I'm assuming when baked in the bread, that would absorb the extra oil. We drained all the oil and ate it with sourdough. The combo of the sourdough and dip was awesome. Great flavor.


I live in Ajax, Ontario, Canada and I'm married with 4 children. I began hating the phrase "Mom, what's for dinner?" until I found this website. I am always trying new things now, and have come across many great keepers.
