Hot Blue Cheese Bacon Dip

[donotprint]
You’ve gotta love a good cheese dip! I’ve been making this dip for years. The combination of blue cheese, bacon and chives…. Ohhh Mama!  Now, add into this equation, the fact that’s it’s piping hot form the oven and, well, the ooey gooeyness of flavor is amazing! This is one of my all time favorite cheese dips :)

I love that I can fix this a day or two ahead of time and just pop it in the oven the whenever I need it. Since, at it’s base, it’s really a cream cheese dip, making it ahead of time works very well. I also like that it’s an appetizer that I haven’t had at everyone else’s house. Some appetizers just seem to make the rounds and get served  ALL the time.  I honestly don’t remember where I got this recipe.  I think it was from a woman’s magazine.  It originally was topped with chopped walnuts.  For some reason, I never use the walnuts.  I guess, for me, with all the rich flavors, it just doesn’t seem to need it![/donotprint]

Blue Cheese Bacon Dip

By January 8, 2013

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees if you are going to bake it immediately.
    2. Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium- high heat for about 10 minutes or until crisp.  Drain bacon and set aside.  When bacon has cooled, crumble it.
    3. Meanwhile, add garlic to skillet and saute for about 1 minute.
    4. Beat cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixture until smooth.  Add half-and-half, beating until it's combined.  Stir in bacon, garlic, (I just spoon it out of the skillet and yes, a lil bit of that bacon grease comes with it!), blue cheese and chives.  Spoon mixture into a 1 quart baking dish.
    5.  Bake for 15 minutes or until golden and bubbly (sometimes I have to put it under the broiler to give it a little color.)  Sprinkle with chopped chives.  Enjoy!

      Looks yummy! I should have Grumpy take a photo of where I sit every night with my laptop. My blogging is my TV….I can't stand to watch what he watches anyway (hunting channels!). He has been known to talk to me about what's on TV and I have been known to never hear him. I don't understand why he thinks if I am sitting here with my computer that I am also paying attention to his TV shows?

      Bacon and blue cheese! What can be wrong with that? Not speaking of the diet, of course.
      This will be a hit at the Super Bowl Party!

      Can this blue cheese dip be assembled and then warmed in the crockpot instead of oven?
