How to Make Caprese Dip

Hot dips are one of my favorite things to make, maybe because I just really like cheese. You can’t go wrong with hot cheese, right? This tomato mozzarella caprese dip is SUPER cheesy, so of course I love it. It’s also easy to make, which makes me love it even more.

How to Make Caprese Dip:

  1. Mix sour cream, herbs, mustard powder, & thyme in a bowl
  2. Add in the cheese and chopped basil and combine
  3. Spread the dip mixture into a baking dish and sprinkle with diced tomatoes
  4. Bake 10-15 minutes at 350°F
  5. While the dip is baking, prepare the bread
  6. Slice the baguette, place bread on a baking sheet, and drizzle with olive oil
  7. Bake in the oven with the dip for 6-8 minutes, until toasted
  8. When the bread and dip are done, switch the oven to broil for 5 minutes so the cheese gets a bit crispy on top

Toasted slices of bread and a hot and cheesy dip ready to serve! It’s hard to resist eating the whole thing, so make this with caution. See the recipe card below for full instructions.
