    Preheat the oven at a temperature of 350°F. In addition to that, lightly grease the baking pan on all sides so that the dip does not stick at the bottom during baking. Oil and butter can be used for this purpose but make sure that a moderate quantity is used as excess oil or butter at the bottom could cause a change in taste of the dip
