"This is really a terrific dip for crackers. I make it for any gatherings that I have to take something to. It always goes over big wherever I take it. Definitely will make it again and again! So good with buttery crackers."

"I recall preparing this dip & then writing out the recipe to use! I left out the olives as they're NOT my favorite food! I drained the mushrooms called for in the recipe, but I left them as is! I added 1 chopped onion, 1/2 to 1 green or red pepper, & if I don't have pizza sauce, I'll use Italian-style pasta sauce and the Mozzarella cheese. I used a greased 9" pie plate and baked 25 minutes at 350o F. I did use these "Slim Jim" beef sticks, chopped to make 1 cup as I didn't have the pepperoni available and I'd beaten the cream cheese 5 minutes until fluffy before spreading in the greased pie plate. I put the pie plate on a baking sheet and then I'd baked the dip at the 25 minute time, rather than microwave! This worked for me! Thank you, Donna Cajski, for sharing this recipe with Simple & Delicious/Quick Cooking! delowenstein"

"This was a delicious and easy appetizer for a family dinner. The only change I made was to leave out the mushrooms."

"This is my most requested recipe. If I make this to take somewhere I always bring printed recipe cards to hand out. I serve mine with tortilla chips rather than crackers. I'm really surprised more people have tried and rated this recipe."
