This delicious dip is always best when it's served really warm -- works well with breadsticks and assorted crackers. I make it during the holidays when JOY is in the air and romance is always in style.

My DH's aunt makes this same recipe and I absolutely love it! She was nice enough to share her recipe with me last summer when I was having a party and my guests couldn't get enough of it this dip. I served it with sliced baguette. It really is awesome... and everyone was asking me for the recipe afterwards. This dip (or spread) can be made ahead and then heated in an oven proof dish for about 25-30 minutes before serving. Read More

Just a tip you might want to try... I bought some sourdough bread cut a hole in the top and kept this dip warm in the oven. Also before I added the dip to the bread bowl I threw in some shredded cheddar/mozza mixed it through and also sprinkled some on top to melt while it was in the oven. Served with sliced baguette - YUMMY My guests had RAVE reviews this is a terrific recipe. Read More

I've made this three times for parties. I always get asked for the recipe. The last timde I didn't have any bacon so I used three tablespoons of butter instead (can't gowrong with butter). I did find that the tastes really blend together if I make it ahead of time and refrigerate for a few hours then warm back up. I used french bread and also white corn tortilla chips. Both went well with the dip. Read More

This was wonderful. I used 5 strips of bacon and used alot more mushrooms. I used more like 20 oz pack from Costco. It is not the prettiest looking but it was great on bread. I think with only 8 oz of mushrooms the cream cheese and sour cream overpowered. Use more mushrooms. Read More

Rich and delicious. I served this at an all womens gathering and they loved it. I had to make a couple of changes. First I chopped the mushrooms instead of slicing and after I added all the ingredients I had to deglaze the pan with about 1/3 cup of white wine. I then placed it in an 8X8 pan and added some dried parsley to garnish and re-heated in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Read More

Excellent dip! I left out the salsa and mushrooms (don't care much for either). Probably due to the absence of salsa it was thicker than I expected for a cheese dip. But it tasted GREAT! We only had chips but I would like to try with bread or bagel chips. Thanks for a great party recipe. Read More
