If you need a quick appetizer to wow your friends and family during the upcoming holidays, look no further! Baked Cheese Dip might be just what the taste buds ordered. Serve hot with crackers.
4 ounces chive and onion flavored cream cheese
(or use plain cream cheese, but double the onion powder or add some very finely diced onions)
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon fresh or dried thyme
1 1/4 cups shredded cheese (I used a combo of Monterey Jack, mozzarella and cheddar)
Preheat the oven to 375. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, mix the cream cheese, mayo and spices together until smooth. Mix in shredded cheese using a spoon or spatula. Place dip into an oven safe dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until brown and bubbly.
