How to make Hot & Cheesy Bruschetta Dip

If your looking for the perfect bruschetta recipe, we’ve got it!

Appetizers are my favorite part of the meal.  I love standing around, gabbing and noshing at a dinner party, a baguette in one hand, something liquid in the other…

There’s just something heart warming about a hot, cheesy bruschetta dip.  Our friends over at The Pampered Chef have come up with a simple, yet hearty Hot and Cheesy Bruschetta that will leave you weak in the knees.

We found that this bruschetta works great on a baguette but can also be used as a straight dip with pita chips, corn chips, crackers or anything you can think of to plunge in there.  This is by far, one of our favorite appetizers.
