Recipe Swap: Crockpot Golden Pizza Dip

It is time for a Recipe Swap!

The theme for this swap was Game Day. As you know, I love football...mainly the Packers, and always enjoy adding a new recipe to my families game day arsenal. Packer games are a big deal in our family, and Sundays are literally planned around the game. Ron and I also love going to the games (not as much this year!) and are planning on going to the game before Christmas. We usually get there around 8 a.m. to properly celebrate before a noon game. Grill, yard games, drinks, and snacks in tow make for a great day (plus there are always lots of bands around the stadium after the game).

I submitted my recipe for crockpot spinach and artichoke dip. I reciped Golden Pizza Fondue from Kate's Recipe Box.  This recipe originally was given to her by her neighbor after she moved into a new apartment.  I modified the recipe a bit and used a crockpot over a fondue pot. Ron and I really enjoyed this dip (the flavors are very close to pizza!). I think this is a great recipe to add to my families Sunday night spread. Thank you Kate for a delicious new appetizer! Also, thank you to Sarah of A Taste of Home Cooking for hosting our swaps!
