Hot Caprese Dip

In honor of football season kickoff {Go Gators!}, I must
share one of my favorite game day appetizers – Hot Caprese Dip! Not only is it
super cheesy and delicious, it’s only THREE ingredients, and is sure to be a huge hit at your next tailgate party!




Hot Caprese Dip

from How Sweet It Is



ounces fresh mozzarella

small roma tomatoes, seeded and juiced

tablespoons fresh basil 


Chop up all of your ingredients. 


Note: Make sure to get as much moisture out of the tomatoes as possible.

In a small baking dish, combine all the ingredients and mix well.


at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes, then broil for 2 minutes so cheese becomes
bubbly and golden. Serve immediately with crackers.

This looks delicious & basil is one of my favorite herbs! Can't wait to make it!

Super tasty! I added some granulated garlic for some extra zing. And next time I make it, I'll make it in a mini-crockpot to keep the cheese from solidifying.

I made this last night and it turned out terrible for me. I seeded the roma tomatoes, inverted to dry for a couple hours, then wiped them with a paper towel. I used fresh mozzarella (whole milk) and fresh basil. Flavor was good, but the consistency was soupy and the cheese was clumpy. I even let it bake a little longer. I was so disappointed. I wonder what I did wrong.....

This recipe turned out awful for me! I was so disappointed. The cheese wasn't melty and dippable, it was so clumpy & the tomatoes made it so soupy. I was really sad.

Oh no! Did you use low fat cheese by chance? Sometimes that makes it not melt as good. :(

I made this over the weekend and while it tasted really good, it was way too thick. We couldn't hardly pull it apart with a cracker. Any suggestions as to why this was so thick and what I need to do differently?
