7 Layer Hot Italian Dip | LemonyThyme.com | #gameday

We started a tradition two years ago that I think will continue for many years to come. Every other month, beginning on Christmas Day, we deliver my mom and dad in-law…

A bottle of red, a bottle of white
It all depends on your appetite
We’ll meet you any time at all
With our appetizer and wine house-call.

Yesterday we delivered 7-Layer Hot Italian Dip along with a bottle of red and white Italian wines.  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.
