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".
