  1. Hi Pati, I recently “discovered” your show and absolutely love it! I can’t wait to try this recipe on your BLT. I was able to find Chipotles in Adobo Sauce easy enough.

    However, when it comes to the Sundried Tomatoes in Oil thus far I’ve only found: Sundried Tomatoes in a Plastic bag OR Sundried Tomatoes in Oil with Italian Herbs. I was wondering if you had any suggestions?

    1. I’m so glad you discovered the show, Heather! You can use the dried ones if you can’t find them in oil. You can re-hydrate them in a bit of warm water, so that they are easier to blend into the spread.

  2. Patient, you are such a joy to watch. I am new to seeing your show on tv. I am going to make the goat cheese spread tonight and try it on a burger. What do you think of that idea? I’m thinking it will be like having a pimento cheese burger in the south.
    Best regards. Janet

  3. Pati-
    Love your show. I just made this dip and it tasted even better than I thought!! I bought all the fixings for a blt tomorrow, I am definitely looking forward to it. But it tastes great on its own and with yellow and orange bell peppers.

    Thanks!!

  4. Hi Pati! Always love watching you! Would I be able to make this in advance? Wanted to make Thursday night and use Saturday. Thanks!

  5. Hey Pati,
    I have tried several of your recipes.
    Never a disappointment.
    Love the show. It is fun seeing your family.
    Keep up the great show.
    Scott

  6. made this today to bring to a christmas eve gathering. i added a pinch of sugar and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice–i felt like it was *missing* something. i need it to stand alone with crackers, etc, so i wanted it to have a bit more pizzaz; as a spread on a sandwich, where it’s in the background, it’s perfect as is! thank you! ideal for my family–many “high maintenance” ppl w/dietary restrictions! :/

  7. Hey Patti,
    I have to bring and appetizer/hors d’oeuvre to a party and thought this would be nice and different. Would it work well with crackers and chips type of thing?
