I made this for my dear, dumb, very Neanderthal Bf Dugan's monthly poker party. I almost hoped it wouldn't go over well so I would have something to eat myself. I LOVE bacon and blue cheese, combined. I was disappointed, I am afraid. I got only a few crackers with this dip before serving. It was hurredly scarfed by the whole lot of Dugan's grease monkey mechanics who demanded more. I make a different dip every month and they look forward to it. This is the first time in three years they have said. "We don't want something different next month. We want this." Then they grunted something I didn't understand and laughed amongst themselves and picked up their beer bottles and drank and started scratching themselves in places that I thought were very inappropiate. I don't know- I guess it is a guy thing. But they seemed to enjoy it. (I mean they seemed to have enjoy the dip- although, I think they may have enjoyed scratching themselves, too) I dunno. So... five stars. Thanks, dear. Pottsie PS. I tripled the bacon... they are carnivours. (Me too!)
I was really excited to try this dip today, however my excitement was short lived. The dip was just ok, I attempted to snaz it up by adding a little sourcream add Tabasco sauce. Thank you for sharing, but I don't think I will be making it again.
I added a dash of worcestershire sauce,and tobasco. I also lightly sauteed the onion and garlic. I stirred about 1 Tbsp of EVOO in at the end. Absolutely delicious. Thank you for a delicious, and healthy appy. The second time I made it I added truffle oil, to die for!
