Bakin’ with Bacon for Super Bowl Sunday!

Standard

Welcome to the Baconian Castle kitchen – Guess who the King is rooting for tomorrow?????

Well, I must say, even though running the kingdom of Baconia is a lot of work, on Saturdays I kind of take a day off so I can come here and play in the kitchen.   Our Castle Chef takes the day off and I take over.    Over the years I’ve made a LOT of yummy bacon things and in fact, have done a number of bacon dips for you with similar recipes BUT today I’m giving you the recipe for the FAVORITE bacon dip/spread EVER at least as far as the ROYAL PARENTS are concerned.    My Mom and Dad have this on toasted bagette slices, dipping chips, crackers, ANYTHING you like to use to put a dip on.    Doesn’t matter because this is just the BEST.    So if you have a crowd coming to your castle tomorrow – think about making this one.   It will disappear in no time.

 

Warm and Cheesy Bacon Dip

Ingredients:
  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • 12 slices bacon (cooked and crumbled) *actually this might be more bacon than you want to use – so use as much or as little as YOU want)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese (at room temperature
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese (shredded (about 2 cups))   *we ALWAYS use sharp cheddar but whatever cheddar you like – go for it!
  • ⅓ cup sliced scallions (about 3 scallions)
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together all of the ingredients until thoroughly combined. Spoon mixture into a 1½-quart baking dish.
  3. Bake until the dip is bubbling and starting to brown on top, 30 to 35 minutes. Serve warm with chips, baguette slices or your favorite crackers.

TOUCHDOWN!   Yep it’s really yummy!

Realizing not everyone is “into” football, or even involved in Super Bowl Sunday if you live across the pond or in another area of the world – we in the castle are rooting for the New England Patriots to win over the Los Angeles Rams.   But as it always is in sports – anything goes.    So who knows how things will turn out???    Not me – I just know I’ll be watching and eating WARM AND CHEESEY BACON DIP!!!!

And when the game gets boring, if it does, I’ll curl up on my throne and nap!

Happy Saturday !   King Teddy

  1. That dip sounds delish! Sour cream is very hard to find in the UK so I usually use either creme fraiche or natural (thick) Greek yoghurt. I think the yoghurt would go best for this recipe.
    I am not into American football, or any football for that matter, but I hope the Patriots win as your family is backing them.

    • Yoghurt is a perfect substitute for sour cream especially in things like dips. This is a very good recipe too and a big favorite when Mom and Dad have company over because EVERYONE seems to love it!

  2. Perfect for tonight… we have to take a hearty appetizer for our thing tonight. I think this qualifies as hearty and it’s quick and sounds delicious. We aren’t much for the Super Bowl, not even the commercials anymore. It is a great excuse to eat good FOOD though… 🙂
    Good Morning!

  3. Teddy, I can’t wait to try this! Not for the Super Bowl, though. Our family isn’t into sports, though Katsu and Purrseidon love to play soccer. However, they admired your jersey so much that they might decide to change. For certain, we all prefer the name Patriot over Ram.

    • Well we’d love it if the Redskins were in it too but that’s not happening – we’re so far away from that it’s SAD. Maybe one day the ‘Skins will rise again but – we’ll believe it when we see it! This dip is AMAZING though – really.

      Hugs, Pam (and Teddy)

  7. Mom says that reading the recipe for that dip…she gained 10 pounds! Alas…we have had NO BACON since Alex went off to work for 6 weeks. He will be back in 2 weeks – purrhaps we will get some then. We will be watching the Super Bowl today…well, MOM will be watching and Ninja and I will be doing CAT things.

    • You can look forward to the return of bacon in two weeks – Ninja will be so happy to see his Dad again but I’m happy that you two have become such good friends and are SHARING your Mom now! YAY!
