Remember I told you about the fabulous dip served each year at the Witch’s Tea hosted by my friend Meridee? She is letting me share her Bacon Cream Cheese Bread Dip recipe with all of you! I recently served it at a family party and it was a huge hit! The salty bacon, the kick from the onions and horseradish & creamy cheese all spread over the crispy bread. It is heaven in a bite! It is the perfect bread dip for any fall or winter party. I plan to make it again on Halloween night so that as we answer the door for our trick-or-treaters we have something yummy to eat. It would also be a perfect appetizer for Thanksgiving or any holiday party!
Bacon Cream Cheese Bread Dip
8 slices of Bacon – cooked crisp and crumbled
8 oz Cream Cheese – room temperature
1/2 c. Mayonaise
2 tsp. Dijon Mustard
1 1/2 c. shredded Swiss Cheese
3 Green Onions diced
1/2 tsp. Horseradish Sauce
Combine all ingredients and mix well using a rubber spatula. Transfer to a shallow baking dish (about 9 x 9) and bake at 400 for 15 minutes.
For the bread, I purchase or make 2 loaves of artisan bread. I cut 1/2 inch slices and brush one side of each slice with a small amount of olive oil and then broil in the oven for just a few minutes on a baking sheet until toasted.
UPDATE: I’ve made this a few times with Sharp Cheddar instead of Swiss – and I can attest to the deliciousness of both cheeses. Try it, you won’t be disappointed with either!
