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
- 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)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large bowl, stir together all of the ingredients until thoroughly combined. Spoon mixture into a 1½-quart baking dish.
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!
