Warm Bacon and Cheese Dip

This is the season. The season for holiday parties, gifts, baked goods, decorations, good will towards all and of course, bacon.  Yes, bacon.  I like bacon, I do.  

We eat alot of turkey bacon around here.  It is better for you and they way my 9 year daughter old chows on it, we must eat it the healthiest way possible.  

When she eats it, or even hears that we will be eating it, she turns into a 9 year version of Homer Simpson when he wants doughnuts.  MMMMM...Baaaconnn! She just doesn't love like the turkey kind. She loves the good stuff.  The fancy bacon.  The kind that costs you $7 for a half pound.  It's crazy. She actually told me that everything would taste better if bacon was added to it.  

I will need to keep a close eye on that kids cholesterol.

Well, I whipped this dip up for the "Holiday Feast" at Mr Plain's work.  Basically, everyone brings a dish and the whole place eats like savages for the day.  Festive, yes.  He's not a dip kinda guy, but, I wanted to try this recipe and what better people to use a guinea pigs for a new recipe than your husband's co-workers?   

Oh, I tried it.  It's great.  Warm, cheesy and yes...Baaaaacccooonnn!

  1. We tried this yesterday for Christmas and loved it! Thanks for posting!!

  2. I'm planning a party next weekend and this dip will be on the table! Can't wait to make it!

  3. This dip was ok... Not as good as I expected. I put the cup of green onion in and maybe we would have liked it better without but I feel like it needs something else. Thanks anyways.

    1. So sorry it didn't work out for you! Here is a great list of dips to give a try:
      Hope one works out for you :)

  4. Was wondering if adding a packet of ranch seasoning would be any good with this. Sounds yummy as is but my husband loves ranch flavoring.

    1. I haven't tried it with ranch, but, give it a try! That's a great idea. Let me know how it works out :)
