It’s party season and there’s lots of reasons to celebrate. I love discovering something new to share with guests or take along to a gathering that is not predictable party fare.
This is one you should try– Bacon Blue Cheese Dip. Easy and different.
Here’s the bonus – although this dip is terrific with potato chips, it is also a winner with slices of apples, celery sticks, carrots, and grapes – I highly recommend you offer those choices to your guests.
- 8 slices of bacon – chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic – minced
- 2 8oz packages of cream cheese – softened
- 1/3 cup milk
- 3 green onions chopped
- 1/3 cup chopped walnuts – toasted
- 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook bacon in a skillet on stove top until crispy. Drain pan and set bacon aside in a small bowl. Add garlic to same pan you cooked bacon in (for extra flavor) and cook over medium heat until soft – about 3 minutes. Using a hand mixer – blend cream cheese and milk in a medium size bowl. Once well blended, stir in garlic, bacon, onion and cheese; put mixture in an oven safe dish (ok to use one you will be serving out of) Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until bubbly. Before serving, sprinkle walnuts on top. Serve warm.
