What is Bruschetta Dip?
It’s a variation of melted warm dips meant to remind you of the taste of bruschetta in every scoop. This recipe for bruschetta dip is full of cheese. It is made with cream cheese, mild mozzarella, and sharp and tangy white cheddar cheese. I added plump tomatoes for freshness and chopped soppressata for some peppery flavor. Once this is all combined, it’s baked until hot and bubbly. I crisped up a few extra slices of soppressata to place on top.

How long is bruschetta dip good for?
the leftovers from this dip can be kept stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 or 3 days. I recommend eating it when it is freshest and warm from the oven because that’s when it is truly at its best. Make sure to reheat until warmed through before eating the leftovers.
What can I use bruschetta dip with besides bread?
You can serve this tasty cheese dip up with just about anything from chips to veggies and bread. Some great ideas include cold baby carrots or celery sticks, eggplant slices, sliced rustic bread, or sliced baguette. Even some pita rounds would be a fabulous choice (toasted or untoasted). There’s no limit to the wonderful things you can serve alongside this dip. Just think about what tastes best with cheese or what would be great with a light and fresh tomato flavor added.
What can I use instead of Soppressata?
If you can’t find this salami in your grocery store then you can use a few slices of different meat like Prosciutto. It’s got great taste and would be good in this dip as well.

Oh I love all the ways you use food in order to try to go back to sleep! I love the spices in alphabetical order trick! And recipe anxiety gets to the best of us. How will I have time to make all of these recipes I want to make? I’ve been up late because of that too. This dip looks like cheese heaven to me!
Ha! Ha! I’ve got a hubby who snores too – and I sometimes can’t get back to sleep too when he snores just a wee bit much! Especially when, like you wrote, your brain is ‘ON’ and you can shut if off – listing everything I have to do the next day – You’ve suggested a good new one I can add to my repertoire; listing spices in alphabetically order (I just look up a spice for E and the only one I found was ‘Exotic peppercorn’ – does that even count? lol) Anyway, the bruschetta dip looks divine! And perfect for the upcoming holidays…thanks for sharing 🙂

It’s called blogger insomnia and I think it’s quite prevalent here in our community! There are just so many things on our mind and I think sometimes it makes us crazy to lay still and try to sleep even though our bodies need it so badly!! On another note, this bruschetta looks incredible and I can’t wait to try those crackers!
You and me girl, we like to eat the same kind of foods! I’m going to look for those focaccia crackers.
Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts says
Thankfully I sleep through the night, because as soon as I do wake up I am the same way. So if I was up in the middle of the night it would not be pretty. LOVE this dip, those crackers sound so good too, I am going to have to find them next trip to the store.
