I never show up to a party without BACON! Come on, if my friends are gracious enough to invite me and/ my family to a party, I can at least bring the bacon! This is what I made and brought to a New Year Eve’s party that was a dessert theme. I figured there would be enough sweets to eat that a savory dish might cut the cheese. Hahahaha I amuse only myself. I asked the hostess ahead of time if this was okay with her. Thanks, Michelle! I’m sure you didn’t mind.;) We brought store-bought tortilla chips to eat with the dip.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. of softened cream cheese
  • 16 oz. of sour cream (large container)
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4-6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled/chopped into small pieces
  • 1 stalk of scallions, chopped
  • 2 jalapeños, chopped, no seeds (Tip: Wear gloves, my eyes learned this from experience!)

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cook bacon and crumble. Set aside.
  3. Chop green onion.
  4. Combine all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mix until well combined. Remember to save some of the bacon, cheese, green onions and jalapeños to garnish on top. I like to do this so people can see what’s in the dip. Transfer mixture into a serving dish that is oven safe. I used a square glass baking dish that’s 8 x 8″.
  5. Bake in oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly.
  6. Serve immediately with sliced French baguette, tortilla chips, crackers or veggies sticks.
