Layered Bruschetta Dip

For father's day my husband always gets the same thing. Pork roast and saurkraut. This year I had a head of napa cabbage in my fridge and used that instead of the saurkraut (glad I did because now the rest of us got to eat some of the roast too, otherwise the kids and i would have had something different). NOT a saurkraut fan, but I know my husband loves it, so he gets it on Father's day and his birthday. I also wanted to make an appetizer for him. He loves chips/crackers and dips and I found this in one of my recipe books and really wanted to try it. I don't think I've ever tried it before. It was a HUGE hit. He ate almost the whole thing in one sitting. Guess i'll be making this more often!!

Layered Bruschetta Dip
1 pkg cream cheese, softened
1 bunch green onions, sliced
1 tomato, diced
3tbsp garlic powder
dash paprika
1tbsp dried Italian seasoning
1/2C shredded sharp cheddar cheese
parsley, chopped

Mix garlic and cream cheese. Place in bottom of small dish. Top with paprika.

Then add green onions,


cheese and parsley.

Eat with wheat crackers.

You could add any spices or flavors to the cream cheese that you like to make it more italian. I made this the day before and let it sit and the flavors melded together beautifully. Of course my fridge smelled like it but it was worth it!!! Hope you enjoy it!

HAPPY EATING!!!!!!!!!!

What a great idea! I'm going to have lots of tomatoes coming up in the garden soon. I'll definitely have to save some for this!
