Crumbled bacon is the crowing glory of this creamy cheese dip that features cream cheese, blue cheese and sour cream. You're guaranteed not to have any leftovers when you bring this dip to a party.
1/2 cup sour cream
1 (4-oz.) package crumbled blue cheese
1 (3-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons diced onion
1/8 teaspoon hot sauce
4 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
Garnishes: chopped fresh parsley, blue cheese crumbles
How to Make It
Process first 5 ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Stir in half of bacon. Cover and chill 2 hours. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with remaining bacon. Garnish, if desired. Serve with crackers.
Prepared this recipe the night before a tailgate. Used Gorgonzola crumbles instead of Blue Cheese and served with Wheat Thins crackers. Very tasty but way too thin. Next time I will use less sour cream (1/4 cup) and more cream cheese (5-6 oz). Will also process the sour cream, cream cheese, hot sauce and diced onion then fold in the Gorgonzola and bacon to make a chunkier spread. Overall a good recipe that just needs a little "tweaking".
