Bacon Blue Cheese Dip

Yields 1 and 1/2 cups     adjust servings

Bacon and blue cheese is one of the best combos out there, right? This Bacon Blue Cheese Dip does not disappoint! It takes just a few minutes to put together. I love serving it with either crackers or fresh apple and pear slices!

Ingredients

For the dip

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chives, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2-3 slices of bacon, crumbled
  • dash salt, if necessary (taste it first)

Serve with

  • crackers
  • sliced apples
  • sliced pears (not overripe, firm is ok)

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl or stand mixer, beat 4 ounces softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add 1/4 cup mayonnaise and 1/4 cup sour cream and beat until smooth, scraping the sides of the bowl.
  3. Use a spatula to fold in 2/3 cup crumbled blue cheese, 2 tablespoons chives, 1 clove of garlic. Stir it all together.
  4. Fry up 2-3 slices of bacon. Or fry up 6 slices of bacon so that you can snack on the ones not needed for the recipe. Is it just me that does this? Here's how to bake your bacon, it's so much easier than frying. And less mess!
  5. Chop up 2-3 slices of bacon once it is cool, and fold into the blue cheese dip.
  6. Taste it and add a dash of salt if you think it needs it!
  7. Serve with crackers. It is really good with a nut-based cracker like Nut Thins. Or for a fresher option, slice up apples and firm pears. I really love this dip with fruit! You don't want the pears to be too ripe or they will just fall apart when you try to dip. Mine were quite crisp and I thought it was really delicious!
