Asiago Cheese Dip

cup chicken broth or water
ounces dried tomatoes (not oil-packed)
16 ounce carton light sour cream
cup finely shredded Asiago cheese (4 ounces)
1 1/4
cups light mayonnaise or salad dressing
cup sliced fresh mushrooms or 1 ounce dehydrated dried mushrooms, such as porcini, shiitake, chanterelle, and/or oyster, coarsely chopped*
cup thinly sliced green onions (8)
8 ounce package light cream cheese (Neufchatel), cut up
Thinly sliced green onions
Whole grain baguette-style French bread slices, toasted**


  1. In a small saucepan bring broth to boiling. Remove from heat. Add tomatoes; cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Drain, discarding liquid. Chop tomatoes (you should have about 1 1/4 cups).
  2. Meanwhile, in a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine sour cream, Asiago cheese, mayonnaise, mushrooms, the 1 cup green onions, and the cream cheese. Stir in tomatoes.
  3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours or on high-heat setting for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  4. Stir well before serving. Sprinkle dip with additional green onions and serve with toasted bread slices. Serve immediately or keep warm, covered, on warm or low-heat setting for up to 2 hours.

From the Test Kitchen


To rehydrate dried mushrooms, place the dried mushrooms in a small bowl. Add enough boiling water to cover; let stand for 30 minutes. Drain mushrooms, squeezing out any excess liquid. Coarsely chop mushrooms.


To toast bread slices, preheat broiler. Place bread slices on a large baking sheet. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until toasted, turning once.
