“If you do not like garlic omit it. If you like spice add some hot pepper flakes. This was originally a Kraft recipe. I love it! The servings depend on your company and what you are serving this with. -2 teenagers could devour the whole loaf. If using it as an appetizer it could serve 10 people - This may also be baked in the oven”
