    My family makes this recipe for holidays & they love it. I don't care for the cream of mushroom taste so I made it w/ all half & half. Everyone loves it even more now.  -  03 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a great tasting dip! The anchovy was a little strong tasting and I will use half next time. Will make again and the possibilities for dipping items is endless.  -  31 Mar 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
