The white chicken chili from last Fall's SB is, to me, better as an appetizer served with chips than as a regular meal, so maybe check that one out.

Wow, I just read through that recipe (I saw it yesterday when I checked his PWS, but didn't read it). That makes a lot of dip!

Yep, it only filled it half way, so doubling it would be good.

Yes, it is an old recipe. I just updated the tools that I used.

Any of the "Create a Dip" recipes from Stoneware Inspirations would work in the DCB, although (IMO) it's a little deep to conveniently scoop dip from.

Meatballs in sauce? The classic recipe with grape jam or cranberry sauce...

Ooh- bacony snausages! I have no idea what they're really called, but they're sooooo good. Not a great show recipe, because it's a 3-ingredient thing and very few tools. But it's a great dish for parties.

Heat oven to 350˚F. Cut 1 pound of bacon in half crosswise, so that you have 1/2-length slices of bacon. Wrap each 1/2 slice around a Little Smoky (mini smoked sausages) and secure with a toothpick. Place in baking dish (DCB). When you have a solid layer of sausages, liberally top with brown sugar. You want to thinly cover the meat - teeny areas visible, but nothing blatantly sticking out above the sugar other than toothpicks. Bake 30 minutes or until bacon is cooked and sausages are heated through. The sugar will combine with the bacon drippings to make a thick sweet-and-savory syrup/sauce. You can bake in a double layer, but the sausages on the top layer won't have as much sauce sticking to them when you pull them out to serve. Be careful when eating, too - hot sugar syrup can burn your mouth! (Ask me how I know... :rolleyes: )

That's sounds really good, too! Gosh, there's just not enough days in the year to try all these amazing recipes! ;)

That sounds like it should be illegal....

Okay, I just found it... what would you recommend for time in the microwave?

Hot Pizza Dip

1 8 oz. package cream cheese softened
1 t. dried Italian seasoning
1 C. mozzarella cheese shredded
3/4 C. parmesan cheese
1 8 oz. can pizza sauce
2 T. green pepper chopped
2 T. green onions sliced

Preheat oven to 350° F. Combine cream cheese and Italian seasonings , spread onto a 8" mini-baker.

In a small bowl, combine mozzarella and parmesan. Sprinkle 1/2 on top of the cream cheese. Spread pizza sauce over the cheese mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Top with bell pepper and green onions. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Serve with french bread or fresh vegetable dippers.

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Here you go, Jen:

Super easy and super yummy!


Hot Pizza Dip

1 pkg. Cream Cheese, softened
1 teaspoon Pantry Italian Seasoning Mix (Basic Italian Seasoning can be used)
1 cup (4 oz) grated Mozzarella Cheese
¾ cup (3 oz) grated fresh Parmesan
1 can (8 oz) Pizza Sauce
¼ cup diced bell pepper, sliced green onions or chopped pitted ripe olives
Toasted Baguette Slices

1. Preheat oven to 350 F (I just use my micro instead). In small batter bowl, combine cream cheese and seasoning mix; Spread onto bottom of mini-baker.
2. In small bowl, combine mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella cheese mixture over cream cheese mixture. Top with pizza sauce, spreading evenly. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese mixture. Bake 15-20 minutes (or 3-5 minutes in micro), or until bubbly. Top with bell pepper, and serve with Toasted Baguette Slices.

I do the Pizza Dip, the Touchdown Taco Dip, and the Spinach and Artichoke Dip in the microwave frequently - at home, and at shows...it works great! One more reason to love our stoneware!:thumbup:
