We brought 7-Layer Hot Italian Dip along with a bottle of red and white Italian wines to a happy-hour party recently. We stepped outside the comfort zone on the wines, perhaps this is a chance to discover a new favorite.
And about this dip. Oh my. I knew when I first read this recipe from Eat at Home Cooks that we’d have a new favorite. Boy was I right. As it turns out, when we delivered 7-Layer Hot Italian Dip straight from the oven, we walked into a happy-hour party already in progress. All in attendance who sampled this new recipe loved it. I think you will as well.
Let’s break down these seven layers of Italian flavor love.
Layer #1 ~ Cream Cheese
Layer #2 ~ Basil Pesto
Layer #3 ~ Roasted Red Peppers
Layer #4 ~ Parmesan Cheese
Layer #5 ~ Artichoke Hearts
Layer #6 ~ Sun Dried Tomatoes
Layer #7 ~ Mozzarella Cheese
7-Layer Hot Italian Dip is that easy and ready to be served in less than 30-minutes. Be sure to keep these key ingredients on hand for your next happy-hour or game day party. We served this yummy appetizer with Cheddar-Parmesan Savory Biscotti. The flavor combinations were wonderful together.
