WOW now this is just great. my dish turned out soooo good and not greesy at all so i'm not sure what some ppl are talking about. I sprayed the dish with pam and used low fat mayo and i added a few slices of swiss cheese on top only because i had some. i also used only half an onion. We r so exited to have this recipe. thank u so much

The onion is too sharp for my taste. Maybe if it was sauteed before adding to the dish. The cheese & mayonnaise makes it very greasy.

I added a small can of Hormel Chili with no Beans and served with corn chips! It was a big hit! Very very tasty!

Good flavor, but my husband complained that it was not creamy enough...he thought it resembled quiche more than a dip.

I made this for a party, and I served it with bagel and corn chips. It was quite a hit! I added 1/2 a jalapeno pepper to the recipe to give it a little kick.

It was a hit! Greasy yes, but I think that comes from the cheese and the butter you grease the dish with. Very good!

Oh my gosh, is this yummy! I doubled the recipe for a potluck for a women's bowling league that I belong to. Women all night long were asking me to write down the recipe, which is so easy, that I did. Pretty much the dish was licked clean. I didn't even have a spoon-ful to share with my family!

When I made this i thought the onion would be to much and to strong so instead I used one shallot. I also used one quarter cup cream cheese and three quarters of a cup of mayonnaise instead of just one full cup of mayonnaise to make it creamier and cheesier. I also added paprika and some dried herbs such as oregano, basil and onion powder. I found it to be creamy and delicious!
