  1. I LOVE blue cheese and will definitely have this in my file of appetizers. I have a question for you, Ms. Robyn. How do you clean your little cast iron pan after cooking something like this. I have a small seasoned pan, but am reluctant to use it for a cheesy dish. I don’t want to ruin the pan. Do you prep the pan in any way? Thank you.

    • Hi Chey!
      I sure hope you enjoy this dip! It is so flavorful and easy! I make sure that my cast iron is well seasoned before using and you can even rub a bit more olive oil into your skillet before you add the dip for baking. I hope that helps! xo

  2. Oh iI must make this.thank you!

  3. This really look so good. I must try this with my wife, she’ll definitely love this as well. Thank you for this recipe.

  4. Yummy! I really want to take this as an appetizer to Thanksgiving dinner, but I’m not sure if the rest of the fan loves bleu cheese as much as I do..I might just have to make two dishes.

    Thanks for posting

  5. I really want to make this for a party this evening but I don’t own a cast iron skillet but would it come out as well in a glass baking dish?
