This is one of those dishes you start to crave when the weather gets cool and you're indoors more and more. Plus it's so luxurious you will want to curl up with a glass of wine and just indulge. It's a fantastic appetizer and we've certainly eaten it as a meal. Torn warm crusty bread is hands down our fav, but kiddos love corn chips and pita chips with this.
