Ingredients

  • 1 cup chicken broth or water

  • 4 ounce dried tomatoes (not oil-packed)

  • 2 16 ounce carton dairy sour cream

  • 1 ½ cup finely shredded Asiago cheese (6 ounces)

  • 1 ¼ cup mayonnaise

  • ½ 8 ounce package cream cheese, cut up

  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms or 1 ounce rehydrated dried mushrooms (such as porcini, shiitake, chanterelle, and/or oyster)*

  • 1 cup thinly sliced green onions

  • Thinly sliced green onions

  • Baguette-style French bread slices, topped with finely shredded Asiago cheese and toasted

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, bring broth to boiling. Remove from heat. Add dried 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, the 1-1/2 cups Asiago cheese, the mayonnaise, cream cheese, mushrooms, and the 1 cup green onions. Stir in chopped 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. Stir well before serving. If desired, keep warm in the slow cooker on low-heat setting for up to 2 hours. Sprinkle dip with additional green onions and serve with toasted cheese-topped baguette slices. Makes 7 cups.

Test Kitchen Tip:

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.

Test Kitchen Tip:

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.
