This is a family favorite. We’ve actually been enjoying this one for too many years to count. It never gets old. And depending on what dietary restrictions you may need to address, this works for most. It is gluten-free, low-carb & delicious. It can be served with crackers, bread or even raw veggies.

This will need to hang out in the oven for about 25 to 30 minutes to fully heat through. The timing depends on the size baking dish you use. Just keep an eye on it. You’ll know it’s ready when you note a lightly golden crust on the edges.

Of course, this is soooooo good when you schmear a generous amount on some grilled sliced baguette. But feel free to try it on wheat or gluten-free crackers. And don’t leave out the low-carb folks. Add some sliced cucumber to your serving tray and it’s official. You have a crowd pleaser.
