Everyone loves the hot brown, but the cooking and assembly can be too cumbersome when you’re cooking for a crowd. Get creative with this steaming Hot Brown Dip that tastes just like the sandwich, but in a rich, scoopable form.


Hot Brown Dip
Serves: 12

Ingredients
8 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1 1/2 cups shredded white cheddar cheese, divided
2 cups chopped cooked turkey
1 Roma tomato, seeded and chopped
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/4 cup grated pecorino romano cheese
Crackers, sliced baguette, or crudite, for serving

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a bowl, stir together the cream cheese, yogurt, nutmeg, 1 cup shredded white cheddar, and turkey until thoroughly combined. Transfer to a baking dish and spread evenly.

Top with the remaining cheddar cheese, tomato, bacon, and the pecorino romano cheese.

Bake at 350°F for about 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly, and lightly browned.

Serve with crackers, baguette slices, and crudite for dipping.
