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.
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!)
- 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.
- 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!
