Expert Tips

  • The dip will be very hot and melty at 20 to 25 minutes, but depending on your oven it may not brown on top. You can broil the top of the dip 2 to 3 minutes to achieve a golden top crust. You can divide the dip into 2 smaller freezer and ovenproof baking dishes and freeze, wrapped well in foil, for up to 1 month. Just defrost overnight in the refrigerator before baking.
