Hot Muffuletta Dip

Recipe by  

"A tasty hot-and-spicy spread worthy of your your Mardi Gras celebration. I find giardiniera in the store by the pickles and other jarred, pickled vegetables. I like to serve this with chunks of French or focaccia bread, but it's great with crackers or tortilla chips, too."

I can't even describe how good this is. Cheesy, briney, meaty goodness. ! I doubled a batch for a Mardi-Gras themed birthday party, and I don't think there will be a drop left. The only change I made was using garlic powder instead of chopping garlic, purely out of laziness. Thinking I'll have to make another batch just for me tomorrow! Thank you Saveur for a great recipe that will be a favorite of ours for years to come.

This is excellent! I made this for Fat Tuesday last night and I can't say enough good things about this. I followed the recipe to a 'T' and was a little concerned it might be too salty, but it is so delicious and not at all too salty. Very savory and cheesy--yum! My husband loved it and said it was one of the best things I have ever made. Absolutely a keeper!

Wow, did we enjoy this recipe! We ate it hot the first night and cold the following day with the leftovers. Not caring for olives, I used extra giardiniera in their place. My store carried regular giardiniera and hot. I opted to use the hot as we like spicy/hot items. DH is not a cream cheese eater, but he sure enjoyed this dip. Thanks Savy, for a delicious appy that will be sure to be made again. It is really different and that was a huge part of its appeal.

I doubled the recipe for a Mardi Gras event and it turned out well! My only complaint is that I feel like it's a bit too chunky to make a very good dip, and I don't know how it will be when its cold. I'm serving it with butter crackers. Very flavorful! I'd suggest slicing the ingredients into smaller pieces next time.
