"I make this dip in the fall when entertaining," relates Laurene Hunsicker of Canton, Pennsylvania. "Everyone enjoys the pizza flavor. Kids especially like dipping with bread that's cut into the shape of ghosts, cats, pumpkins and bats. So get out your cookie cutters!"
I'm a busy stay-at-home mom with a 3-year-old son. I love this recipe because it's easy to prepare in advance and keep refrigerated. Put it in the oven when guests arrive, and by the time you've poured beverages, the dip is ready. It gets gobbled up quickly!

"This tasty cold snack dip is one of my most-requested recipes and always pleases friends at get-togethers," relates Georgene Robertson of Pikeville, Kentucky. "People keep scooping until the platter is clean."
For a satisfying snack, spread slices of French bread with this thick cheesy mixture. "It's a very adaptable recipe," notes reader Beverly Mons of Middletown, New York. "It would also be good with Italian sausage instead of ground beef."
I first served this dip during a Super Bowl party, and boy, did it disappeared fast. It's a great addition to a snack table because it can be made ahead of time and refrigerated until you're ready to pop it in the oven.—Molly Seidel, Edgewood, New Mexico
