    In small bowl, mix bread crumbs and melted butter. Sprinkle over dip mixture in pan. Cover with foil. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until edges start to brown and dip is hot. Remove foil; bake 4 to 7 minutes longer or until bread crumbs are golden brown.

    Top dip with pickles or relish. Serve with waffle fries.

Expert Tips

  • If cream cheese isn’t soft enough to spread with a spatula, place in medium microwavable bowl; microwave uncovered on High in 10-second intervals until spreadable.
  • If you can’t take the heat, reduce ground red pepper to 1 tablespoon.
