Cream Cheese, Bacon and Spinach Dip

This is always a hit at parties, and is frequently requested by friends and relations. I got it from my mother many years ago. And if, by some weird chance, you have any leftover, it's great on toast in the morning for breakfast. I serve it with plain crackers and/or carrot and celery crudites.


  1. Grill bacon until well-cooked, but not crispy. If you do this on a rack above an oven tray, much of the fat will drip away. The time will vary according to the type of bacon. Cool bacon for a few minutes, then chop into very small pieces.
  2. Microwave frozen spinach according to directions on the package. Drain any liquid.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, mix all the ingredients together until well-blended, then transfer to a nice serving bowl.
  4. Cover with glad wrap and cool in the fridge. If you can prepare this a few hours ahead of time, the flavours will intensify, but it is fine straight away.

Delicious dip and so easy to make. I chopped the cooked bacon fine -- then threw it, the cheese and the cooked spinach into the food processor. It was all buzzed together in less than a minute. I added about a tablespoon of milk to thin the mixture. Served with carrots and crackers. Leftovers were dolloped on baked potatoes. Made and enjoyed for the Aussie/NZ Joey Tag Game.
