Bakin’ In Baconia for Christmas!


Greetings Loyal Subjects!  Your King has taken over the Castle kitchen yet again to bring you another FAB Christmas recipe!!!

Today it’s going to be an appetizer…………perfect for when your company arrives but Christmas dinner isn’t QUITE ready to put on the table yet.   Just be careful they don’t eat so much of this that they are too full to have the MAIN EVENT!    You may have to remove this after 15 or 20 minutes out on the buffet table for your guests!   No foolin’ !

Bacon-Cheddar Dip

This is another one of those “easy to make” recipes too………when you’re busy in the kitchen making a big Christmas dinner for everyone you can just put this out and let everyone help themselves with crackers, chips,  or crusty crostini – make it the night before and let it come to room temp the morning of your get-together…………



  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 5 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 large green pepper, chopped
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) taco sauce
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • Tortilla or nacho tortilla chips (or something else you might like!)


  • In a bowl, beat cream cheese and sour cream until smooth. Spread in an ungreased 13×9-in. dish or on a 12-in. plate. Combine onions, tomatoes and green pepper; sprinkle over the cream cheese layer.
  • Pour taco sauce over the vegetables. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Refrigerate. Just before serving, sprinkle with bacon. Serve with chips.



Well everyone I bet you already have your holiday meals planned right?    If you’re still looking for a few “what do I feed these people before the main even???” ideas, this is a good one.

Cool ornaments for your tree if you’re a BACON lover!

Yeah – why not leave Santa a pile of bacon and a glass of milk instead of the traditional cookies and milk?????

See you next week for the next to last “bacon for Christmas” recipe before the BIG DAY.

Happy Saturday !

Bakin’ With Bacon For Christmas!


OK My Fellow Baconians!    Your King gave you some ideas for Thanksgiving and NOW – as we are a mere FOUR weeks away from Christmas – I will be giving you some ideas for FUN Christmas goodies involving bacon!


This first one is an appetizer that is ridiculously easy to make and maybe sounds a little weird but let me tell you – when they are so tasty that your Kitchen Staff eats them all up the minute they are ready then has to go back to the ROYAL GROCERY STORE to purchase two more jars of maraschino cherries – they MUST be good!


Bacon-Wrapped Cherries


  • 36 maraschino cherries, stemmed, drained and juice reserved
  • 18 slices bacon slices, halved 36 toothpicks



  1. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven’s broiler.
  2. Wrap each cherry with a bacon half, secure with toothpick and arrange on baking sheet. Drizzle reserved cherry juice over wrapped cherries.
  3. Broil in preheated oven until bacon is crisped to your liking, 3 to 10 minutes.

EASY?   Oh yeah……..well I thought you might like an incredibly EASY recipe to start this Christmas extravaganza with………..and I think you will be glad I did!

Yes indeed I did and plenty of it!

You’ve got that right!

So over the next few weeks I’ll find some more fun recipes for baconized goodies you might like to serve to your holiday guests.   It won’t be long now before you have surprise drop-in guests and they don’t come any more simple than this recipe and I’ll try to find OTHER “easies” for you too!

It’s the least I can do for my loyal subjects………….provide you with yummy foodables right??


Until next week…………….Hugs, King Teddy
