"I could eat this as a meal I loved it that much! I did cut up bread into squares with a little butter and baked them for a few minutes to use with the dip. Yum!"

"This is a very tasty dip. I was pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the onions tasted. I agree with the other reviewers that its much better once it has cooled. I sprinkled the top with some chili powder just before serving. The recipe is easy to reduce. I made just 1/2 and it was more than ample enough for 4 adults.

I will be trying this one again with other cheeses.

"One thing I really liked about this has already been is even good when it cools down. That makes it a great recipe to take OR make when you need a snack or appetizer."
