Bakin’ With Bacon and The King

Standard

Time for us to play in my kitchen!    What are we making today????

 

Bacon Dijon Cheddar Dip

 

We have made a lot of dips and given you the recipes and MANY of them are pretty much the same.   This one has one claim to fame – the spicy mustard!    Funny how just one thing can really make a plain dip POP.    It works and it’s good.    The ROYAL PARENTS tried this on crackers and on dip chips as well as thinly sliced bagette.  Know what?   It’s good on anything.

 

Ingredients

4 slices bacon (or more!)

8 ounces cream cheese softened

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons finely chopped onion

1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley (optional – it’s just a decoration!)

Directions

  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate, let cool, and crumble the bacon.
  2. Place the cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, and Dijon mustard into a bowl, and mix on medium speed with an electric mixer until the ingredients are thoroughly blended. Stir in the onion and crumbled bacon, and spoon into a serving bowl. Refrigerate for 2 hours to blend the flavors, and sprinkle with parsley to serve.

Doesn’t get any easier than this and if you’re a fan of spicy mustard – OH BOY!   If you are NOT a fan of spicy mustard I’m sure regular good old mustard would be good.   In this house, we ALWAYS have spicy though because the ROYAL DAD loves the stuff – on almost everything………..(well almost).

 

Trust me…….this would make a nice addition to the snack table you have for Super Bowl Sunday tomorrow! 

I’ll be sitting on my King of Bacon throne watching the game and rooting for the Kansas City Chiefs – I have to – my beloved Grandpa would be upset up in Heaven if I didn’t root for them…..he was from Missouri.    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CHIEFS!

Hugs from Your King – Teddy!

  1. Meowser my Baking King, I know you’re a bacon expert, but don’t dismiss parsley as a mere decoration. If you eat it, parsley may help keep your bones healthy; help regulate your blood sugar levels; support your renal health and strengthen your immune system. It also freshens breath.

  4. Teddy, our mom was thinking that if you spread this dip on the thinly sliced baguette and then put it in the toaster oven that it would be really nommy. What do you think? You look dashing in your KC Chiefs hat. If they were playing anyone other than the 49ers, Mom and Dad would probably cheer them on, as they lived in KC for four years.
