Bar Harbor® Roasted Shoreline Dip

This is a great way of introducing us New Englander's to Manhattan Clam Chowder. At Bar Harbor Foods, we gently spice this 'other' popular chowder in a way that won't have us Yankee's running for the exit. And when combined with smooth, highly meltable Monterey Jack Cheese, this dip is perfectly flavored and just may make converts out of us. After all, our stubborn streak can't be that bad, can it?

Butter-flavored nonstick cooking spray

1 loaf French bread

1 teaspoon each of garlic and onion powder, mixed

8 ounces ricotta cheese, drained well

1/2 cup light or half-and-half cream

1 (15-ounce) can Bar Harbor® New England Style Red Clam Sauce

1 (15-ouonce) can Bar Harbor® Manhattan Style Clam Chowder

1-1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 cup whole kernel corn

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. Spray the inside of six 1-cup ramekins with nonstick cooking spray or an 8 x 8-inch glass casserole dish; set aside. Cut French bread in half lengthwise. We will use only 1/2 of this bread so store the remainder for later use. Slice this half of the French bread into 1/2-inch thick slices. Place these in a single layer on 1 (or 2 if needed) baking pan. Spray each side of the bread slices with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle garlic and onion powder on the top side. Set aside whilte making dip.

In a large bowl, whisk ricotta cheese and cream until smooth. Add clam sauce, chowder, 1 cup Jack cheese, Parmesan cheese, corn and panko crumbs. Stir until well combined and transfer to prepared ramekins or casserole dish. Sprinkle remaining Jack cheese over the top and.bake 15-20 minutes (or 30-40 minutes if using casserole dish) or until bubbling and starting to crisp on the sides. Remove from oven to cool slightly before serving.

During the last 10 minutes of cooking, bake bread dippers for 3-4 minutes, or until browned and very crispy. Flip and  cook an additional 3 minutes. Remove from oven to cool slightly before setting out for everyone's enjoyment.
