This recipe is another that conjures up memories of childhood. Every evening, whether we had just commuted home from Boston or, on weekends, on our sailboat, my grandfather would have a mini happy hour – an Old Fashioned to drink and a little basket of cheese and crackers that my grandmother would set up for him. Cheese and crackers are a constant in my home still. Or, in this case, cheese and bread. My mom often made a bread dip recipe similar to this one.
