This Baked Ricotta Dip is the perfect quick and simple appetizer recipe! It’s a great option to serve at a dinner party, or for game day!
This past week, my mom had the ladies from her book club over for dinner! She chose to go with a Valentine’s Day theme being so close to the upcoming Holiday. She served her Chicken Pot Pie Soup, Vegetable Beef Noodle Soup, this dip, and a charcuterie board full of yummies!
For dessert, she asked me to make a batch of my Valentine’s Mini Cheesecake Squares and of course, my Fireball shots, hehe!
The dinner was a huge hit and everyone LOVED the food! Afterwards, she sent me lots of pictures of the food spread as well as the recipe for this tasty new dip!
She had toasted baguette bread to serve with the dip and said it was a rich, savory cheese dip that was the perfect compliment to the dinner!
If you’re having company over and looking for a great appetizer option, look no further! This Baked Ricotta Dip is just what you need! Great for guests, game day, or just as a snacking option at home….this is one dish you won’t want to pass up!
A fun option would be to serve this in a small cast iron pan like this one, https://amzn.to/2DiH4Gx
