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

I can't decide if I want to steal the dip or the pooches... what cuties!
M Swift
So do you cook the dip for 10 to 15 minutes total, or an additional 6 to 8 minutes with the bread in there? Thanks!
    becky gall hardin
    10-15 minutes total. you'll see when the dip gets really melty and a little brown on the top. just pop the bread in with about 8 minutes left :). hope you like it!
Kim

    becky gall hardin

Oh my yumminess! I think I'm in trouble now, 'cause I could eat that all by myself! I might just have to make this for my daughter's graduation party. It will be a hit for sure! Thanks, Becky!
Brandy Rosenfeldt
could you do the caprese dip in acrock pot?
    Becky Hardin
    You could! I haven't tried it but I think it would work out just fine.
Kelly
What do you do to keep this dip warm and melty if serving at a party? Any method you prefer for reheating? Or does it never last that long, lol?!
    Becky Hardin
    It's never lasted that long for us :) But you can reheat in the oven or you could throw it in a slow cooker for a party. Enjoy!
Sharon Proctor
Can you please explain what type of cheese Monterey Jack is - aged chedaar, sharp, etc as I haven't seen this type of cheese in Australia. Also what can I replace herbs of provance with?
    Becky Hardin
    Hi Sharon! It's just a shredded cheese blend we have here in the states. You can use any shredded white cheese. White cheddar would be good if you guys have that. Also you can just leave the herbs of provence out...but here is an explanation of what that is. Hope you love the dip! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbes_de_Provence
